Are you wondering how to turn on 5G on your iPhone 13, 13 Pro, or 13 Pro Max? In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of enabling or disabling 5G and customizing your data mode.
To start, open your Settings application and tap on Cellular. Then, tap on Cellular Data Options. By default, voice and data are set to 5G auto, which means that your phone will connect to a 5G tower only when it’s close by and available, and only when it’s not going to significantly reduce your battery life.
If you want to turn off 5G, simply tap on the Voice & Data option and switch to LTE. However, keep in mind that 5G drains your battery faster than LTE, so if you switch to 5G, your battery will drain faster too.
There’s also a data mode feature that ties into your 5G network. The default option is Standard, which allows automatic updates and background tasks on cellular but limits video and FaceTime quality. If you don’t mind using 5G with those options, you can set it to Allow More Data on 5G. This option will allow more data on 5G and may prefer 5G over Wi-Fi and use it for software updates, automatic iCloud backups, and higher quality media. However, be cautious when using this feature, as it could burn through your data plan and result in overage charges if your plan is not unlimited.
The Low Data Mode option helps reduce cellular data usage by pausing automatic updates and background tasks. It’s up to you how you want your phone to run when it’s on those 5G networks. We recommend using these features with caution to avoid unexpected charges and data overages.
In conclusion, turning on or off 5G on your iPhone 13, 13 Pro, or 13 Pro Max is easy. Just go to Cellular Data Options, switch to LTE if you want to turn off 5G, or leave it on 5G auto if you want your phone to automatically switch between 5G and LTE. Additionally, customize your data mode to suit your needs. Keep in mind that using 5G will drain your battery faster than LTE, so use it wisely.
