Praise be to the Speed Force, there’s finally a 5G iPhone. And it’s available now! If you’re an existing Optus customer upgrading to the iPhone 12 or 12 Pro, you are no doubt excited to enjoy the kinds of blisteringly fast download speeds Tony Abbott doesn’t think any person would ever need access to.
If this is your first 5G phone, though, there’s a good chance your Sim hasn’t been set up for 5G yet.
The good news is that it’s a pretty simple process:
Download the My Optus app, or update it to the latest version if you’ve already got it.
Log in with your account details
Go to “Service”
Tap on “Settings”
Select “5G Network”
Flick the switch to “Activate 5G”
Wait between 15 minutes and 4 hours for the change to come into effect.
Note: This will only work on a 5G phone, so you can’t get it set up beforehand.
