In addition to mobile networks such as 5G, the development of Wi-Fi 6 is also crucial. Especially at the level of Wi-Fi 6E, it uses the new 6GHz frequency band with a wireless maximum rate of 3.6Gbps, which is 1200Mbps faster than Wi-Fi 6’s 2400Mbps, and has lower latency. The upcoming iPhone 13 may support Wi-Fi 6E specifications.
Apple iPhone 13 supports 6GHz Wi-Fi 6E
This year, the FCC passed the 1200MHz spectrum of the US 6GHz band for unlicensed use, paving the way for supporting Wi-Fi 6E. Wi-Fi 6E uses the 6GHz frequency band, the 6GHz frequency range is 5925-7125MHz, including 7 160MHz channels, 14 80MHz channels, 29 40MHz channels, and 60 20MHz channels, which greatly increases the wireless transmission capacity.
Combined with reports from some technology media, Apple plans to release the first batch of iPhones that support Wi-Fi 6E in 2021. Semiconductor company Skyworks can be sure to provide various components for this year’s “iPhone 13” models, including Wi-Fi 6E power amplifiers. Chipmaker Broadcom will also benefit from the adoption of Wi-Fi 6E by Apple and Samsung this year.
At present, Samsung’s new Galaxy S21 Ultra smart phone has provided support for Wi-Fi 6E networks.
