The iPhone 13 lineup, which is expected to debut in the third week of September, is expected to include WiFi 6E, an improved version of the WiFi 6 protocol. As a result, the newer models will be able to support faster wireless download speeds and greater range.
When compared to WiFi 6, WiFi 6 adds an extra band, allowing iPhone 13 to support those upgrades
According to DigiTimes, the iPhone 13 will include new WiFi chips, which were not included in the iPhone 12 range last year. While it may not be a significant upgrade for those planning to purchase one of the four models due later this year, it does have some advantages, which we’ve listed below. There are only minor differences between the WiFi 6E and WiFi 6 protocols, with the exception that the latter adds a 6GHz band.
Increased speeds, increased reliability due to less interference from other devices, and improved range are all benefits of this band. To take advantage of all of WiFi 6E’s features, your iPhone 13 must be connected to a WiFi 6E access point. Many users, in all honesty, will not notice the difference and, as a result, will not feel compelled to upgrade their router in the coming months. Access points and devices that only support the WiFi 5 protocol, on the other hand, should be upgraded.
The arrival of WiFi 6E for the new iPhone 13 models was mentioned in a previous report by Barclays analysts, so this news should not come as a surprise to our readers. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X60 5G modem, in addition to the new standard, is expected to appear in upcoming handsets. The new baseband chip is said to be more efficient and faster than the Snapdragon X55 modem found in the iPhone 12 series, resulting in improved battery life.
