Many smartphones on the market support the Wi-Fi 6 wireless transmission protocol. But there is an improved version of this technology, Wi-Fi 6E. Recently, a research report shared by Barclays analysts Blayne Curtis and Tom O’Malley proved that the iPhone 15 series would support the latest Wi-Fi 6E wireless transmission. But they didn’t specify whether the feature will be available on all models or Pro models only.
Previously, we have heard similar rumors about the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14. Particularly, there have been some rumors as the mentioned models would come with Wi-Fi 6E support. But the Cupertino-based company failed to materialize. Now that Apple has started bringing Wi-Fi 6E support to its latest devices, it’s very likely that the iPhone 15 will eventually support the standard.
So far, Apple has only a few devices that support Wi-Fi 6E wireless transmission. Among them, we can mention the latest iPad Pro 11-inch 2022 model, iPad Pro 12.9-inch 2022 model, MacBook Pro 14-inch and 16-inch, and Mac mini. At the same time, we should note that all models of the iPhone 14 series support the Wi-Fi 6 standard wireless transmission protocol.
The Wi-Fi 6E wireless transmission protocol first adds a 6GHz frequency band compared to Wi-Fi 6. Also, the wireless transmission capability is greatly increased, thereby achieving faster wireless transmission speeds, lower delays, and less signal interference.
On the one hand, this could noticeably improve the phone’s performance in wireless networks. On the other hand, Wi-Fi 7 is on the way. So it’s a logical move by Apple. Although we should mention that Apple doesn’t hurry to bring new technologies and innovations to its smartphones. Say, the Android handsets have been using the notch screen for ages. But the Cupertino firm began using it only on its iPhone X model.
