Wi-Fi 6E is an extension of the Wi-Fi 6 standard that allows for using the 6GHz frequency band in addition to the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands currently in use. This can result in faster speeds, lower latency, and reduced interference from other devices. There is no guarantee that the iPhone 15 will support Wi-Fi 6E, but it could if the technology becomes more popular.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says the Wi-Fi 6E standard will be used in the iPhone 15 models in 2023. In a note about Apple’s work on a Wi-Fi chip, Kuo said that the company would upgrade the iPhone 15 to Wi-Fi 6E.
Apple is already using Wi-Fi 6E for the 11- and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models introduced last year, along with the new Mac mini and 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models. Apple did not use Wi-Fi 6E for the iPhone 14 lineup, but it is ready to bring the technology to the iPhone with the 2023 update.
Along with Kuo, Barclay’s analysts Blayne Curtis and Tom O’Malley have also said that the iPhone 15 models will get a Wi-Fi 6E upgrade. No rumors have confirmed whether Wi-Fi 6E will be brought to all iPhone 15 models or limited to the higher-end iPhone 15 Pro models.
With compatible routers and cable modems, Wi-Fi 6E devices can connect to the 6GHz band, providing faster connectivity, lower latency, and less interference than you might see on the standard 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. Wi-Fi 6E is the first Wi-Fi standard to connect to networks at 6 GHz. The older Wi-Fi 6 standard could only connect to 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz networks.
Wi-Fi 6E is becoming more prevalent, and a Wi-Fi 6E router must take full advantage. Many companies, from Netgear to Asus to Linksys, are already selling Wi-Fi 6E hardware.
Other features of the iPhone 15 will include USB-C connectivity, faster 3nm A17 chips for the Pro models, periscope lens technology for the most expensive iPhone 15, solid-state volume and power buttons, an upgrade to titanium, and the addition of the Dynamic Island to the standard iPhone 15 line.
