The iPhone 13 series should support the Wi-Fi 6E standard: this is stated by two Barclays analysts, Blayne Curtis and Thomas O Malley.
According to statements by two Barclays analysts – Blayne Curtis and Thomas O Malley -, Apple will release the first iPhone models that support the Wi-Fi 6E standard in 2021.
iPhone 13 with Wi-Fi 6E?
The semiconductor companies will be supplying various components for this year’s “ iPhone 13 ” – or, rather, iPhone 12s – models, including power amplifiers for the new Wi-Fi 6E connectivity module, it said.
The chipmaker Broadcom will benefit from Apple’s adoption of the new standard, according to Barclays analysts; We also remind you that a few weeks ago Samsung launched its new Galaxy S21 Ultra smartphone, based on Broadcom chips with Wi-Fi 6E.
Incidentally, the new connectivity module is able to improve the features and functions of the Wi-Fi 6 standard: it provides higher performance, lower latency, and higher data transfer rates. Additionally, Wi-Fi 6E is capable of delivering greater bandwidth, which translates into less interference for devices that support it.
As for the official launch date of the next series of Apple devices, it is rumored that it may coincide with September 2021: from the latest rumors, it emerged that this iPhone will have the 5 nm Apple Bionic A15 chip on board, which would boast performance more advanced than the Bionic A14 present on the iPhone 12 range.
Furthermore, the iPhone 13 will be the first iPhone to use the LTPO screen and, therefore, its Pro model will be able to support a variable refresh rate up to 120 Hz. However, presumably, the iPhone 13 Mini and iPhone 13 should continue to use a display with refresh rates up to 60Hz.
