A new analyst suggests that Apple will bring Wi-Fi 6E to the iPhone 15, bringing the device in line with other Apple devices such as the Mac miniMacBook Pro, and iPad Pro.
Barclays analysts Blayne Curtis and Tom O’Malley shared a research note, seen by MacRumorsthat assumes Apple will add Wi-Fi 6E support to its upcoming iPhone 15 lineup.
At this time, it is not yet determined whether support will be limited to the iPhone 15 Pro models.
Wi-Fi 6E operates on the same 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands that Wi-Fi 6 does but also operates above the 6GHz band. This allows for faster wireless speeds and less signal interference. To use the 6Ghz band, devices must be connected to a Wi-Fi 6E router.
The iPhone 14 lineup has standard Wi-Fi 6, despite previous rumors suggesting it would see an upgrade.
As for the high-end iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, some analysts expect Apple to add a 12-megapixel periscope lens adapted to improved optical zoom.
Both the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max are expected to have an A17 chip built with TSMC’s 3-nanometer technology, 8 gigabytes of RAM, and a new titanium frame.
