APN stands for ‘Access Point Name’ and it is a common term that you are likely to come across. Although it sounds technical, an APN can simply be explained as settings for connecting to the gateway linking your device to the internet.
APN serves as a middleman between your device and the internet. Note that, if you have the incorrect APN settings, there’s no way you can access the internet.
