All about 5G

As the iPhone 12 is Apple’s first 5G iPhone, it’s being quite heavily marketed as such by both Apple and carriers. We have a useful 5G guide that will explain exactly what 5G is, why you should care, and how the reality isn’t quite the same as the hype.

Once you figure out what 5G is all about, you then need to figure out what you need to do to your plan to get 5G. All three major carriers offer some version of 5G, and how to get it varies. Here’s how to pick the right plan on your carrier to get 5G.
