One of the most significant upgrades for the iPhone 12 is its compatibility with 5G technology.

Apple’s highly-anticipated product release of 2020 is the iPhone 12 models.

With potentially new camera abilities, A14 processor and LiDAR Scanner technology, Apple leakers and prospective iPhone buyers, like yourself perhaps, cannot wait to confirm the ongoing suspicions.

As for the iPhone 12’s more pervasive feature worldwide, the possibility that 5G connectivity will be included keeps Apple fans at the edge of their seats.

But what exactly is 5G? How does having 5G connectivity affect the iPhone 12? We will cover these details in the next section.

What is 5G Connectivity?

First off, by supporting 5G technology, all iPhone 12 models can now reach download speeds of up to 300MB per second.

Whether you are streaming data, downloading apps or uploading photos, your iPhone experience will be undoubtedly faster.


In short, the 5G connection is the future of cellular carriers and smartphone user experiences.

When the iPhone 12 launch event happens, we will see the full extent of the iPhone 12’s 5G capabilities. However, there is much to look forward to, and fans should be excited about the iPhone 12’s 5G compatibility.

Will the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro Connectivity be Different?

The iPhone 12 Pro models can reach up to 2GB per second of download speed, but the phone must be within a specific range of 5G nodes. For the iPhone 12 models, the 5G spectrum is broader and slower than the iPhone 12 Pros.

On the other hand, the iPhone 12 Pros will most likely support mmWave technology, which is said to be faster within a limited coverage.

While other mobile manufacturers, like Samsung, already have support for 5G connectivity, Apple will add further upgrades to enhance the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pros’ value.

What are the Benefits of 5G Technology?

Many expect that Apple will host new 5G features or applications made exclusively for 5G compatibility. With the A14 chip rumored to be included in the iPhone 12 series, Apple can easily add the 5G technology.

For example, Apple might have an iPhone 12 game designed specifically for 5G performance. Apple might also highlight the advantages of using Apple TV Plus or Apple Music now that 5G technology is available, hopefully luring new customers into using these services.


With 5G technology, Augmented Reality (AR) features will most likely be optimized. AR is a crucial part of the iPhone 12, especially with the rumored LiDAR scanner coming to the Pro models. The LiDAR scanner will improve the quality of photos and videos captured on the rear cameras.

The 5G technology will undoubtedly enhance the upcoming iPhone 12’s overall performance.
