Apple iPhone 15: Apple is reportedly working on introducing many new features in the upcoming iPhone 15 series. There are now reports that the tech giant will likely extend his Wi-Fi 6E (the ‘E’ stands for ‘enhanced’) support to the iPhone 15.
for now, apple offers Wi-Fi 6E support on select devices only. The latest 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pros, 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pros, and Mac mini models. All iPhone 14 models are still limited to standard Wi-Fi 6.
The information was shared by Barclays analysts Blaine Curtis and Tom O’Malley. However, Curtis didn’t specify if the Wi-Fi 6E feature will be available on all models in his iPhone 15 series, or if he’ll be limited to the Pro models.
Wi-Fi 6 operates in the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, while Wi-Fi 6E uses the 6GHz radio band. This enables faster and more reliable wireless connectivity for compatible devices.
Previously, there were rumors that the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 models could support Wi-Fi 6E. But now that Apple has started rolling out his Wi-Fi 6E support to its latest devices, the iPhone 15 will likely support the standard, says the report.
