According to an internal training document shared by Apple’s employees on Reddit, Naijatechnews October 20th revealed that the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro will not be able to use the 5G network in dual-SIM mode when they are launched. Foreign media MacRumors confirmed this document. It is true.

According to the document, when two lines are used in dual SIM card mode, neither line supports 5G data and will fall back to 4G LTE. If the customer only uses eSIM and is using an operator and package that supports 5G, 5G can be used.

However, according to the Verizon internal slideshow obtained by MacRumors, Apple plans to enable 5G support in dual-SIM mode through a software update later this year . At the same time, Verizon stated that eSIM customers must remove the physical SIM card from the iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro to access its 5G network.

As long as the user selects a supported wireless carrier that provides 5G networks, iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro models will automatically enable 5G. If you want to connect to 5G while roaming in other countries, Apple’s documents stated that users can purchase a local SIM card or eSIM plan, and use it as a single line where there is 5G.

It is worth mentioning that the dual-SIM function of the iPhone 12 series is realized by a physical SIM and a digital eSIM card abroad, and it is realized by a dual-physical SIM card in mainland China and other regions. It is not clear whether the above situation is for the National Bank version. Also applies.

Naijatechnews.com learned that the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro will be pre-ordered last Friday and will be shipped to users this Friday. The iPhone 12 mini and iPhone 12 Pro Max will be pre-ordered on November 6.
