Data shows that so far, the download speed of 5g network in the United States is only 1.8 times faster than that of 4G network. In other countries with 5g networks using if band frequency, the speed can be five times that of 4G.
Some analysts believe that in todays U.S. network, using the new iPhone or any 5g device is like owning a Ferrari sports car, but you can only drive on rural roads.
It is reported that the iPhone 12 supports two modes of 5g network: millimeter wave 5g and low frequency sub-6ghz 5g. On the whole, the speed of millimeter wave 5g is faster, but its coverage is not as good as sub-6ghz 5g.
In view of the current coverage of 5g network, Apple iPhone 12 also supports smartdata intelligent switching technology. In short, it is connected to 5g network when 5g is needed, and 4glte network when 5g is not available, which can save more power.
