Apple Is Experimenting with Ultra Fast, Light-based Li-Fi Wireless Data, As It Is Seen From iOS Code

Apple is doing an experiment using ultra fast, light-based Li-Fi wireless data for the future iPhone, as it was found by someone on Twitter, who reported it exclusively to the Appleinsider. He found a reference to Li-Fi on the code of the recent iOS 9.1. Li-Fi capability can be found in the library cache file alongside other hardware and software capability declarations.

Li-Fi is the future technology, which can replace Wi-Fi in term of speed. The speed of Li-Fi transfer data theoretically can reach up to 224 Gigabits per second, while the fastest Wi-Fi at this moment can only reach 1.3 Gigabits per second in average. Data is transmitted by rapidly modulating a light source, and received with a light sensor before being reassembled into an electronic signal. Currently, Li-Fi is still in the experimental stage.

Li-Fi still needs time to be implemented, at least after the Li-Fi based routers can be found easily in the market. However, according to this report, does it mean Apple will encourage this industry to be available in the market faster with their iPhone?

Apple is famous with their initiative technology, for instance, the Thunderbolt technology on Ma, which was new at that time, and only Apple has it. But, then the market responded it well by the present of the compatible device with that port. If the iPhone is equipped with this technology, it means the transfer big data era is about to develop.
