Activate And Deactivate Airplane Mode
Sometimes Apple devices face network connectivity issues. Turning the Airplane mode on for a few seconds and then turning it off can reset the network connectivity. And more often this step can resolve any network-related issues including the 5G not working issue on iPhone 12. Here is how you can do it.

- You can also activate airplane mode from the control center on your iPhone.
- Just swipe down from the top-right side of the screen to access the control center.
- Now tap on the Airplane mode icon to enable and disable Airplane mode.
Make Sure You Network Service Provide Or Cellular Plan Provides 5G
Many of the network service providers do not support 5G because they still don’t have the proper infrastructure to offer 5G to their users. If your network provider is offering 5G services to you then make sure that you have the proper mobile plan that is offering 5G services.
Check 5G Coverage Areas
5G is still new and is limited to major cities. Most of the small tows and ruler areas does not have 5G coverage, Moreover, most of these areas also do not even have 4G LTE or any cellular coverage areas. So, if you have a 5G package activated on your sim then make sure that you are in a 5G covered area.
You can check for the 5G coverage area map on the official website of your network services provider. However, if you are not in the 5G covered area then your device will automatically revert to 4G LTE.
Check If 5G Is Activated On Your Device
If the above-said workaround does not work and you are in a 5G coverage area then check if 5G services are activated on your iPhone 12. Here is how you can do it.
- Open the Settings App on your iPhone.
- Scroll down and select cellular.
- In this menu, select “Cellular Data Options”.
- Now make sure 5G is activated.
- If 5G is not activated then tp on the toggle to activate 5g services.
Moreover, if you don’t have the “Cellular Data Options” menu on your device then it means that you do not have a 5G network carrier or you don’t have a proper 5G plan. Contact the network service provider for further instructions and information.
