IPhone 12 owners beware: the speeds of your 5G may be slower than 4G

One of the highly publicized benefits of having an iPhone 12 on Verizon was the service of a 5G wireless operator. Apple even brought CEO Hans Westberg to the launch of the iPhone on October 12 in October to talk about 5G. But current 5G performance on the Verizon network may disappoint people who have purchased an iPhone 12 – or any type of 5G device – for use on the Verizon national network.

According to PC Magazine testing, Verizon customers may want to turn off their 5G signal and stick to 4G LTE instead, as a more established standard may be faster than 5G in certain areas.
