WiFi-free iPhone 12 can update iOS with 5G

iOS devices can be upgraded via OTA (Over the Air), but users must have WiFi. However, when iPhone 12 supports 5G, users can finally download iOS updates via 5G without WiFi.

In the iPhone 12 settings, there is an option called Data Mode in "Telecom". If the user selects Allow More Data on 5G, it will allow the iPhone to use 5G for FaceTime, HD video streaming, HD music streaming, and iOS updates.
