‘5G E’ Icon For AT&T Users

Lately, AT&T is in doldrums concerning its initiative to roll out  "5G E" icon for the cellular signal, which according to other service providers like Sprint is the advanced 4G LTE service. And for the same, Sprint has sued AT&T. Apple skipped the controversy and has added the "5G E" icon for the AT&T users.
