Do I need a new SIM card to get 5G when I upgrade my iPhone

Replacing an iPhone 6_ with an iPhone 12 pro max.  Can I just transfer my SIM card, or do I need a new one?

Hello @nwikner,


We'd like to provide more details on your SIM inquiry.


Yes, you will need to purchase a new 5G compatible SIM for your iPhone 12 Pro Max for 5G coverage.


Your new device should have came with the compatible SIM.


If you ever have any other questions or concerns in the future, feel free to reach back out as we are always here to help!
