As per a report, the iPhone 15 lineup could support faster Wi-Fi 6E. However, analysts did not specify if the feature will be added to all models or just limited to the Pro models.
Previously, Twitter user @Wade Penner spotted an unreleased MacBook Pro in the Canadian regulatory database. As per the shared screenshot of the filing, Apple’s new laptop will also support Wi-Fi 6E like the next-generation 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro with the M2 chip.
iPhone 15 lineup could possibly support Wi-Fi 6E, which can operate on over 6GHz brands
According to a research note shared by Barclays analysts Blayne Curtis and Tom O’Malley, the iPhone 15 models will support Wi-Fi 6E. So far has added Wi-Fi 6E support to a handful of devices, while iPhone 14 models remain limited to standard Wi-Fi 6.
Wi-Fi 6E also operates on bands with over 6GHz, allowing faster wireless speeds, lower latency, and less signal interference, while Wi-Fi 6 only operates on the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. The device must be connected to a Wi-FI 6E router, which is available from brands like TP-Link, Asus, and Netgear to take the advantage of benefits Wi-FI 6E offers.
Previously, there were also rumors for iPhone 13 to support faster Wi-Fi 6E, but Apple failed to materialize. However, this time the company has already started rolling out Wi-Fi 6E support to its latest devices, so there are possibilities that the iPhone 15 will also support the standard.
Apple’s all four iPhone 15 models will feature Dynamic Island and USB-C port, while iPhone 15 Pro models will use solid-state volume, power buttons, and more. The company is expected to introduce the iPhone 15, iPhone 15 Plus, iPhone 15 Pro, and iPhone 15 Pro Max in September.
