The newest network won’t change how you use your phone—but you can still make the most of it

What a weekend! After a 5G-powered robot performed surgery on my foot, I took a 5G-powered self-driving car to my 5G-powered house where a 5G-powered drone delivered a guacamole-powered burrito.

None of that happened, of course. But you know what did happen this past weekend? I turned off Verizon VZ 0.02%increase; green up pointing triangle 5G on my iPhone—and barely noticed a difference. The 4G LTE performance and coverage felt just about the same.
