Starting next week iPhones in India will begin receiving the iOS 16.2 with 5G support

Following the release of iOS 16.1 last month, Apple began testing iOS 16.2 with beta programme participants, including both developers and the general public. Apple today told The Indian Express that the beta version of iOS 16.2 that will be released next week would finally enable 5G on Airtel and Jio for iPhones in India.

After the country’s 5G services went live on October 1, the Indian government put a lot of pressure on the company to do this. Apple previously said that all compatible devices would receive the final release of iOS 16.2 in December.

In the interim, you may enroll your smartphone on the beta program website if you wish to test 5G capability in India. After that, you’ll get the most recent beta, and the high-speed connections-enabling new build should arrive the following week.

All things considered, be aware that these beta releases may have bugs and/or things that just don’t work in them. If this bothers you, it’s better to wait for the stable release, which happens next month, when all the problems will have been resolved.
