Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched his 5G service on October 1 to much fanfare. Telecom giant Reliance Jio said it would make the service available in four cities, while rival Bharti Airtel would make it available in eight cities. Both companies said the service will be expanded over the next year.

However, according to industry sources and the Airtel website, Apple's iPhone models, including the latest iPhone 14, and many of the flagships from Samsung and other brands do not have 5G-compatible software in India. . Concerned about this, India's top telecoms and IT sector officials chaired a meeting on Wednesday to roll out 5G soon, with foreign companies Apple, Samsung, Vivo, Xiaomi, and domestic carriers as well. Reach out to smartphone executives at Reliance, Airtel, and Vodafone Idea, according to existing government documents. The agenda includes talks to "set priorities" and release software upgrades to support high-speed networks, the closed-door meeting stated.

Apple Inc, Samsung Electronics, Vivo, Xiaomi Corp, and three domestic carriers did not respond with a comment. Government IT and telecommunications departments were also unable to respond.

India says its 5G rollout in the world's largest mobile market after China will bring high-speed internet to consumers, as well as socio-economic benefits in areas such as agriculture and health.

Operators and smartphone companies are in talks with each other, but it will take time to resolve compatibility issues between operator-specific 5G technology and phone software in India, industry sources said.

According to Airtel's website, on Tuesday in its "5G Ready" section that "Apple still needs a software update" for all Apple iPhones between 12 and 14 models. Airtel also said many Samsung models are also not ready for 5G, but China's Xiaomi and Vivo indicated more than 30 models are ready for use with his 5G service.

"Apple has been taking a lot of time. Airtel has been concerned about this as many of their premium clients are on Apple devices," said another industry source with direct knowledge of the situation, who added Apple and Airtel have been holding talks.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 Slim, rumored to launch as the Galaxy W25 in China this October, may not be available globally. The W25 is expected to be lighter, thinner, and larger than the standard Z Fold 6, possibly due to the removal of S Pen support. Traditionally, Samsung rebrands its Z-series foldables for the Chinese market, as seen with last year's Galaxy Z Fold 5, which launched in China as the Galaxy W24. The exact global availability of the Galaxy W25 remains uncertain, but more details may emerge after the Samsung Unpacked event on July 10th.
