Apple’s recently launched 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros feature new and more powerful M2 Pro and M2 Max chips, as well as Wi-Fi, the latest Wi-Fi standard that supports an additional wireless band and increases internet speeds. It also supports 6E contact. According to a recent analysis by Barclays, it will not be a surprise that the iPhone 15 series also supports Wi-Fi 6E.
In fact, it is not the first time that we encounter news that claims that Wi-Fi 6E will come to iPhone. More than a year ago, there were similar news before the introduction of the iPhone 14, but the phone has not gained this feature until now.
A Wi-FI 6E upgrade for the iPhone 15 seems plausible right now as Apple is expected to launch its first-generation mixed reality headset this year. Apple’s AR/VR headset is expected to support Wi-Fi 6E, and the wireless connectivity standard could be a valuable component in Apple’s ecosystem.
While Apple has not yet revealed how the mixed reality headset will work, it can be predicted that Wi-Fi will play a big part in the overall experience. Wi-Fi will not only enable the headset to connect to the internet to enjoy VR apps, it will also be responsible for data sharing with Mac, iPhone and iPad.
Unfortunately, as is often the case with this type of news, there is no way to confirm the upcoming Wi-Fi 6E boost to the iPhone 15. Barclays analysts Blayne Curtisand Tom O’Malley believes that the 2023 iPhones will have a faster Wi-Fi system. However, analysts do not specify which iPhone 15 models will support Wi-Fi 6E.
Which iPhone 15 models can have Wi-Fi 6E?
The new sales model that emerged with the iPhone 14 also makes things a little more complicated. With the iPhone 14 series, Apple has placed the non-Pro and Pro models in very different positions from each other. Now, the difference between the iPhone 15 Pro Max (or Ultra) and the iPhone 15 Pro is expected to become evident. So the new Wi-Fi standard can only be found in Pro Max.
In the middle, it wouldn’t be true to say that Wi-Fi 6E stand alone is enough for faster internet and lower latency and signal interference. Besides, you need to have a relatively new router (or modem) in your home or office that supports Wi-FI 6E…
