Apple is currently testing 5G capability on Airtel and Reliance Jio network in iOS 16 beta. Earlier this week, the American technology giant rolled out 16.2 developer beta for supported iPhones enabling 5G on both standalone and non-standalone networks. The developer beta will be followed by public beta soon with final commercial release of the iOS 16.2 slated for December release.
