Initial tests for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro showed that 5G networks consume more data, and drain battery power about two hours faster than 4G networks.
Also in the iPhone 12 phones, Apple introduced a new setting called 5G Auto also called Smart Data mode as the default setting for switching between 5G and 4G networks automatically according to the application you are using. There are also some other options.
If you are interested in knowing the 5G performance that you will see on the new iPhone 12, this will vary depending on where you live and your carrier. But you should keep in mind that there are several types of 5G, the most prominent of which are: mmWave networks that provide ultra-fast speeds, but their range is very limited, and Sub-6Ghz 5G networks that have better range but their speed is closer to 4G LTE networks.
If 5G networks are available in the area you currently live in and you want to run them in the new iPhone 12, you will need to contact your carrier to verify that your plan supports 5G, or to know if you need to upgrade or change your plan, and you may also need a card New SIM if current card doesnt work with 5G networks.
