His tweet went viral in minutes with other people joining in, raising the same issue. “Same is happening on my iPhone 13 pro which has the latest software update,” a Twitter user wrote.

Why is it crucial?

Bharti Airtet rolled out 5G service on October 6 in eight cities. The service is available in Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Siliguri, Nagpur, and Varanasi. The company said users will not need to change their SIM card as the existing one will now be 5G-enabled.

Is my smartphone compatible?

According to the Airtel website, 5G models of companies like Apple, Samsung, Xiaomi, Vivo, Oppo, Realme and OnePlus are compatible. Some of the devices include Samsung Fold series, Galaxy S22 series, iPhone 12 series and later models, Realme 8s 5G, Realme X7 series, Vivo X50 onwards smartphones and other devices. Some companies are, however, yet to release software updates in order to make it compatible with 5G.
