    iPhone 12 vs iPhone 13 5G performance

    Anyone have any experience with the iPhone 13 over the 12? I read the 13 can aggregate 5G, just wondering if its worth upgrading, or how much difference that would make in performance with the newer modem

    Aside from the iPhones 13 supporting 5G carrier aggregation and the iPhones 12 not supporting it (other than mmWave + mmWave intraband aggregation up to 800 MHz), the iPhones 13 also have notably better RF performance and are therefore be less likely to lose service in fringe coverage areas.

    5G CA doesn't matter much now, but it will in just a matter of weeks if you're within one of the 46 initial C-Band markets because 5G CA will allow AT&T to aggregate n77/n78 with n2, n5, or n66, or — if they finally deploy them — even n12, n29, or n30.

    I may consider upgrading to the 13 then, honestly I’m not impressed by the 5G on the 12, I’ve not once had it outperform LTE and the phone in general doesn’t hold signal out of town nearly as good as my 8 plus did
