The dual SIM mode, which will also be installed in the iPhone 12, means that one device can use two types of eSIM and SIM cards at the same time. In dual SIM mode, different communication plans can be used, so it is possible to use one SIM card for domestic use and the other for overseas use, for example.

Reddit has reported an in-house document suggesting that iPhone 12 will not support 5G for such dual SIM modes. Posted to Reddit is Apple's in-house training manual for iPhone 12, in the blue circle in the image below, in response to the question 'Does 5G work with dual SIM?' 'In dual SIM mode. If you use two types of lines, 5G is not supported on either line and is set to 4G LTE. If you are using only eSIM and have a 5G-enabled carrier and service plan, It is possible to access with 5G. '



A Reddit user who posted an in-house document claims that 'the update scheduled for late 2020 will enable 5G even in dual SIM mode.' In addition, although news media Verge asked Apple for comment on 5G support in dual SIM mode in the future iPhone 12, it was said that no answer was obtained at the time of writing the article.

Also, the information posted on Reddit is said to be Apple's internal document, but MacRumors, an information site for Apple products, updated Apple's dual SIM support page on September 26, 2020 at the time of writing the article. Said that 5G was not mentioned, and claimed that the truth of the information was not clear.
