How is 5G SA enabled on an iPhone?

How is 5G SA enabled on an iPhone?

Year after year, the hardware and features are getting more advanced. Mobile Internet, for example, is constantly evolving to improve the experience of Internet users. It is even in the process of transitioning from 4G to a new technology, 5G. Since it is in its initial stage, this new service is often not used.

This mainly happens with iPhone users, since only a simple activation is required in the device settings, but not everyone knows about it. So, now find out how to activate 5G SA on a file iPhone.

5G SA arrives with a huge advantage over 4G

If 4G mobile internet is considered really fast, reaching 100 Mbps (megabits per second) with a response time (latency) ranging from 60ms to 98ms (the smaller, the better), Fifth generation network SA goes much further.

The new technology is capable of reaching a staggering 10 gigabits per second (Gbps) operating at latency between 10 and 1 millisecond, and it can go even lower. As a result, data processing is much faster and users experience less interference and connection delays.

  • 5G SA is only available for iPhone 14 line

After making the latest version of iOS available, Apple has released 5G SA access in Brazil. However, even with some earlier lines having compatibility with the technology, the company has restricted its use to only the 14th line of iPhones.

  • Step by step to activate 5G SA

  • open settings;
  • Go to “Cell Phone”.
  • Click on Cellular Data Options.
