A new analyst note suggests that Apple will be bringing Wi-Fi 6E to the iPhone 15, bringing the device in line with other Apple devices like the Mac mini, MacBook Pro, and iPad Pro.
Barclays analysts Blayne Curtis and Tom O’Malley shared a research note, seen by MacRumors, that posits Apple will add Wi-Fi 6E support to its upcoming iPhone 15 lineup.
Currently, it’s yet to be determined whether support will be limited to the iPhone 15 Pro models.
Wi-Fi 6E works on the same 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands that Wi-Fi 6 does but also works over the 6GHz band. This enables 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 features standard Wi-Fi 6, despite previous rumors suggesting that it would see an upgrade.
Regarding the higher-end iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max, some analysts expect that Apple will add a 12-megapixel periscope lens geared toward improved optical zoom.
Both the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max are anticipated to have an A17 chip built with TSMC’s 3-nanometer technology, 8 gigabytes of RAM, and a new titanium frame.
