Apple launched its most powerful and advanced iPad Pro earlier this year. The company has now released an important update for iPadOS. The tech giant said that iPadOS has now support for 5G.
With the rollout of 5G-enabled iPhones, Apple added an extra option to iOS enabling iPhone 12 owners to download iOS updates when they are connected to a 5G cellular network. In a support page update on Friday, Apple is bringing the same feature to iPadOS.
The iPad Pro adding a feature Apple previously introduced with the iPhone 12. This provides an additional option to download iOS updates with a 5G network wherever available.
How to enable the cellular on Apple iPad Pro 2021?
Apple said that some users will get the setting as default in the iPadOS updates. These users will have unlimited data plans. The option will have to be enabled manually for other users.
- Open the Settings app.
- Select Cellular Data, then Cellular Data Options.
- Select Data Mode.
- Tap Allow more data on 5G.
The user can even enable the Low Data Mode option, which helps reduce Wi-Fi and cellular data usage by pausing automatic updates and background tasks.
On the iPad settings, on the Cellular Data tab, users can choose how their tablet is going to use the 5G network:
- 5G Auto: Enables Smart Data mode. When 5G speeds don’t provide a noticeably better experience, your iPad automatically switches to LTE, saving battery life.
- 5G On: Always uses 5G network when it’s available. This might reduce battery life.
- LTE: Uses only LTE network, even when 5G is available.
If you don’t see 5G in the status bar
- Make sure that you’re in an area with 5G coverage. If you’re not sure, contact your carrier.
- Go to Settings > Cellular > Cellular Data Options. If you don’t see this screen, make sure that your carrier supports 5G.
- Turn on Airplane Mode, then turn it off.
- If you still don’t have a 5G service, contact your carrier.
