Here is a method to determine whether your Apple iPhone is connected to a 5G network or not. When your 5G cellular plan has been activated, and you are in an area where your telecom provider offers 5G coverage, your iPhone's status bar will display a 5G icon. The iPhone user will have a clear indication from that.
Notably, Apple iPhones have many 5G modes. 5G Auto comes first, followed by 5G On and LTE.
5G Auto- Turns on Smart Data mode. Your iPhone switches to LTE automatically to conserve battery life when 5G speeds don't offer a noticeably improved experience.
5G On- Utilize the 5G network whenever possible. Battery life can suffer as a result.
LTE- uses only the LTE network, despite the availability of 5G.
Apple SIM and eSIM Support for 5G
You can make use of your old iPhone's SIM or eSIM card. However, an outdated SIM card might not be able to support 5G network rates. According to Apple, in some circumstances, you may need to get in touch with your carrier to configure the SIM card from your old iPhone for use with a 5G network. Your old SIM card might be replaced by a new 5G capable SIM by the carrier.
