iPhone 12 Pro carrier compatibility guide

iPhone 12 Pro carrier compatibility guide



If you are shopping for an iPhone 12 Pro you may notice that there are several different models available. Getting the correct model number will ensure carrier compatibility, and while having to consider different model numbers may sound like an added level of confusion, it isn’t something you need to worry about because we’re about to cover all the details here in this post.

Apple introduced the iPhone 12 lineup on October 13, 2020. The iPhone 12 becomes the 14th generation of the iPhone and consists of the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and the iPhone 12 Pro Max. For the purposes of this post, we’ll be covering the different models that are available for the iPhone 12 Pro.

The iPhone model numbers all begin with the letter A, which is then followed by four numbers. In general, the different model numbers are for different regions or different countries. Also for reference, you can confirm an iPhone’s model number by navigating to Settings -> General -> About. From this point, you just need to tap on “Model Number” to reveal the “A” model number.

iPhone 12 Pro model A2341

If you live in the United States, the iPhone 12 Pro model number you’ll want is the A2341. This model offers support for all U.S.-based carriers including Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile — with support for LTE and 5G networks.

In addition to supporting the big three wireless carriers, the A2341 will also support various MVNO networks such as Mint Mobile, Cricket Wireless, US Cellular, Straight Talk, and others. The iPhone 12 Pro (model A2341) supports the following bands:

  • 5G NR (Bands n1, n2, n3, n5, n7, n8, n12, n20, n25, n28, n38, n40, n41, n66, n71, n77, n78, n79)
  • 5G NR mmWave (Bands n260, n261)
  • FDD-LTE (Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 14, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 28, 29, 30, 32, 66, 71)
  • TD-LTE (Bands 34, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 46, 48)
  • CDMA EV-DO Rev. A (800, 1900 MHz)
  • UMTS / HSPA+/DC-HSDPA (850, 900, 1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz)
  • GSM / EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)

In the past, different U.S. carriers would support different bands, which meant that you needed a different model depending on the carrier you planned to use. But, the iPhone 12 Pro has a single model number that supports all U.S. carriers. This includes support for GSM and CDMA as well as 4G LTE and 5G networks. Of course, there are other models available outside the U.S. market so if you are buying a newish iPhone 12 Pro you will want to double-check the model number to ensure carrier compatibility.
