It was previously reported that following the launch of the fifth-generation telecommunications network in India, the Government had requested smartphone manufacturers to quickly release an upgrade of the software, which would activate 5G support in local smartphones. It was now known that Apple representatives and Bharti Airtel's telecommunications company would meet this week to discuss the timing of the deployment of 5G support in the United States company's devices.
It is expected that the upcoming meeting will identify the reasons for the delay in launching the upgrade to activate 5G support and the time frame within which Apple will be able to activate the corresponding option so that Indian users of compatible iPhone can use the second largest telecommunications company in India.
According to the report, Apple is currently testing 5G support in its smartphones on Airtel and Reliance Jio networks. It is noted that an American company is testing 5G networks every time a new operator starts such a service.
Again, 5G networks have been supported in the iPhone 12, but in India this function is not active because it was not necessary because of the lack of infrastructure in the country. Similarly, 5G support has been disabled in the smartphones Samsung and Google that were sold in India. At the same time, the compatible Android Smartphones Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo and Realme have already activated support for the 5G Plus autonomous network in eight Indian cities since the launch of the infrastructure on the operator's networks on 1 October.
