Whenever a new iPhone series is about to launch, consumers expect it to be better than the last released models in every possible way. The expectations are always high and a large number of people who might have bought an iPhone just a while back, don’t mind investing in the new model as long as it offers them something new and innovative. After all, who doesn’t like to flaunt owning a newly launched iPhone model? Apple tries to design the new iPhone in a way that it meets the expectation of the consumers and has the kind of technology that acts as a roadmap for other companies.
In today’s times, most people can’t imagine a day without having access to the internet. This is something that smartphone manufacturing companies also realize. That’s precisely the reason why most phones feature upgraded connectivity support and other features that would help the user have access to high-speed internet.
Keeping this in mind, Apple is trying to integrate Wi-Fi 6E support in the iPhone 13 models it launches this year. This particular piece of information was shared by Barclays analysts Thomas O’Malley and Blayne Curtis and featured in a report published by the portal Mac Rumors.
The analysts stated that the sentiment of the investors around Skyworks, an Apple supplier, is “too negative” as the company, which deals primarily in semiconductors, will reportedly be providing a variety of components for the iPhone 13 models that are slated to release later this year. The Wi-Fi 6E power amplifiers are one of the many components Apple will receive from Skyworks.
The fact that the Barclays analysts had also made a prediction about the iPhone 13 models supporting Wi-Fi 6E last month makes one further believe that this information must be true after all.
The features and capabilities that Wi-Fi 6E offers are similar to the kind one comes across in Wi-Fi 6 including a lower rate of latency, smooth performance, faster data rates, and extension into the 6 GHz band. The additional spectrum will facilitate the possibility of having more airspace beyond the presently available 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi. All this would amount to lesser disturbance and increased bandwidth for devices that are compatible with Wi-Fi 6E.
A while back, the FCC implemented rules that make 1,200 MHz of spectrum in the 6 GHz band eligible for use in the United Stated without procuring a license. The new rules have made it easier for launching devices in the country that support Wi-Fi 6E.
All the models in the iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 series, along with the second-generation iPhone SE, are compatible with the regular, non-6 GHz version of Wi-Fi 6. Apple will reportedly introduce its iPhone 13 lineup in the market in September this year.
