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.
