The much awaited iPhone 15 is already generating buzz, and it appears that Apple is upping the ante by including a more advanced Wi-Fi 6E chip. Wi-Fi 6E, the most recent iteration of Wi-Fi technology, offers higher speeds and lower latency.
Blayne Curtis, Tom O'Malley, and Ming-Chi Kuo, analysts for Barclays and Apple, respectively, have all confirmed that the iPhone 15 will be released with the most recent Wi-Fi 6E standard. It has not yet been determined if the feature would only be available on Pro models or if it will also apply to vanilla models.
The "E" stands for "extended," and WiFi 6E is an expansion of the current WiFi 6 (802.11ax) standard. WiFi 6E uses the 6GHz frequency spectrum, which is the primary distinction between WiFi 6 and WiFi 6E.
The potential of WiFi 6E to deliver higher speeds is one of its primary features. The 6GHz frequency spectrum can transmit more data since it is substantially wider than the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies now used by WiFi. This causes decreased latency and quicker download and upload rates. Users may anticipate rates of up to 9.6 Gbps with WiFi 6E, which is roughly three times faster than WiFi 6's top speeds.
The potential of WiFi 6E to lessen congestion is another benefit. There is less interference from other devices because the 6GHz frequency band is much less congested than the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. As a result, there are fewer dropped connections and less buffering, making the connection more dependable.
Additionally, WiFi 6E offers increased capacity, which allows it to support more devices concurrently. This is especially helpful in homes and workplaces where there are several smart devices or bandwidth requirements, and if many people and devices are connecting to the same network.
A few of the earlier iPhone 15 leaks point to a more curved screen with an even better screen-to-body ratio. A titanium frame, an A17 processor, capacitive volume and power buttons, a dynamic island, and a USB C connector are a few further characteristics that have been rumoured.
