It looks like connectivity will be a key issue in the iPhone 13, in addition to expanding the availability of 5G mmWave to more countries, it could be the Apple’s first device to support 6E Wi-Fi networks. A protocol that would allow more stability and speed in the connections, something more and more fundamental in many scenarios.
More speed, less latency and more connections at the same point
According to DigiTimes in its report, Apple would introduce 6E technology of the Wi-Fi protocol in the iPhone 13. A most substantial change
GaAs integrated circuit foundries Win Semiconductors and Advanced Wireless Semiconductor Company (AWSC), and GaAs wafer supplier Visual Photonics Epitaxy Company (VPEC) are set to significantly increase revenue in the second half of 2021, due to demand for the next iPhones. and applications related to Wi-Fi 6E, according to industry sources.
As always DigiTimes supports its surveys from industry sources that collect the past some of the many Apple Supply Chain Suppliers. If the predictions are true, the iPhone 13 will be the first Apple device to use the 6 GHz band for connections.
The spectrum extends over approximately 1200 MHz and generally guarantees Much higher bandwidth, higher speeds, lower latency and, although not related to a physical aspect, but technological, it improves the security of individual connections.
Granted, there aren’t too many hotspots with 6E Wi-Fi technology just yet, but the fact that a device as large as the iPhone supports them can only accelerate their adoption. Another small detail among many others that will allow this iPhone 13 to stand out in particular from its predecessor.
