Jio and Airtel launched their 5G services in selected areas of India last month, and Android users were quick to take advantage of the service as soon as it launched. However, iPhone users have to wait no more, as Apple has rolled out iOS 16.2 with 5G support in India for compatible iPhones. You should check out the new features in iOS 16.2.
So, if you have an iPhone SE 3rd Generation, iPhone 12 Series, iPhone 13 Series, or iPhone 14 Series, you can use 5G connectivity in India. But only updating to iOS 16.2 will not turn on 5G on the iPhone. It has to be done manually in the settings.
Since the number of Jio users is very high, we have created this guide on activating Jio 5G on an iPhone on iOS 16.2.
How to Enable Jio 5G on iPhone on iOS 16.2
Activating Jio 5G on an iPhone is easy and straightforward. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to do it:
