Vodacom South Africa supports 5G on iPhone 12

Tuesday 9 February 2021 | 11:12 CET | News
Vodacom South Africa has announced that its network now supports 5G connectivity on the iPhone 12, Mybroadband reported. Vodacom said customers can visit its website to learn about setting up a Vodacom 5G plan. MTN said in early December 2020 that 5G support for the iPhone 12 would initially only be offered on the MTN network, as it was the only one authorised to enable 5G on the new smartphone from its South African launch in December 2020 into early 2021.
