The APN is the gateway through which you get internet on your iPhone. It’s how your phone gets connected to the internet. Without these settings, you will not be able to get connectivity on your device.
We have already noted that in most instances, you will automatically receive the Cell C internet settings for your iPhone the first time that you insert your SIM into the device. But that does not always happen and you may be forced to manually set up your APN settings.
In fact, APN settings are important. If you do not have the correct settings on your device, you will not have internet. They are also the first port of call should you have problems with connectivity on your device.
