Note that the 5G network download option is only available for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 series. This leaves older devices in the dust, limiting them to downloading software updates via WiFi only. However, iOS 15.4 will bring the option to all non-5G iPhone models, allowing them to download software updates not only over WiFi, but also over cellular data.

The change was spotted in iOS 15.4 beta 3 which now displays an alert to users asking if they want to “Use cellular data for downloading?” It also mentions that if you disconnect from your WiFi, you can resume updating via cellular data, and “Additional usage charges will apply,” reads the prompt.
