The upcoming iPhone 15 models set to be released in 2023 will feature the Wi-Fi 6E standard, according to Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. In a statement regarding Apple's work on a Wi-Fi chip, Kuo mentioned that the iPhone 15 lineup will be upgraded to Wi-Fi 6E. This technology is already being used on the 11 and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models, as well as the new Mac mini and 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models. However, it was not included in the iPhone 14 range. But with the 2023 update, it will make its way to the iPhone range.
Benefits of Wi-Fi 6E
In addition to Kuo, Barclays analysts Blayne Curtis and Tom O'Malley have also suggested that the iPhone 15 models will receive a Wi-Fi 6E upgrade. This technology offers a range of benefits compared to the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands that are currently used, such as faster connectivity, lower latency, and reduced interference. Furthermore, this upgrade will make it easier for users to take advantage of the 6GHz band, as it requires compatible routers and cable modems, as well as a Wi-Fi 6E router, to make full use of it. Companies such as Netgear, Asus, and Linksys are already selling Wi-Fi 6E hardware, so it could be that the iPhone 15 range will make use of it.
Features of the iPhone 15
Other features of the iPhone 15 include USB-C connectivity, faster 3nm A17 chips for the Pro models, periscope lens technology for the top-of-the-line iPhone 15, solid-state volume and power buttons, an upgrade to titanium, and the expansion of the Dynamic Island to the standard iPhone 15 line. Furthermore, the iPhone 15 range is likely to benefit from other improvements too, such as enhanced battery life, improved water resistance, more powerful processors, and even 5G support. All of these features indicate the kind of power and performance that users can expect from the iPhone 15 range. Further details can be found in our iPhone 15 roundup.
