Your iPhone can now use 5G with Google Fi.
After a long wait, Google Fi now offers 5G coverage for iPhone. It’s a long overdue feature, but still, it’s a welcome change for iPhone users on Google Fi.
This change requires the iOS 16.4 update and a 5G-enabled iPhone. If you own the iPhone 12 or later device, that’s fine. The third-generation iPhone SE also supports 5G, though previous SE modes don’t.

Also, you may need to enable Google Fi 5G coverage from your iPhone settings: open Settings, go to “Cellular”, select “Cellular Data Options”, tap “Voice & Data”, select your Google Fi number and navigate to “Voice”. & Date.”
It took Google Fi a full three years to roll out 5G support for iOS, and we’re not quite sure why. Rival MVNOs started offering 5G support for iOS in 2020 and 2021. But hey, maybe Google can support visual voicemail on iOS (instead of directing customers to the Fi voicemail system).
Enjoy affordable service and many benefits with a Google Fi subscription.
