As we all know, California based Cupertino was anticipated to provide WiFi 6E support to iPhones with the iPhone 13 series this year. But, unfortunately, Apple was not able to do that, and according to reports, there is no information about when the iPhones are going to get the capability that many other smartphone flagships already have. According to a recent report, Apple could do this next year, with the iPhone 14 lineup along with its impending mixed reality headset.
For those of you who don’t know, WiFi 6E is the next generation of WiFi connectivity that makes its users able to have a 6GHz connection. Now talking about its utilization, this interprets to a faster, less latency, Gigabit speed, and the ability to have control on more devices than is feasible with WiFi 5. Moreover, smartphones including Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, the Pixel 6, 6 Pro, and Asus ROG Phone 5 have support for the WiFi 6E.
According to Ming-Chi Kuo, the well known Apple’s analyst, the company is going to join this list coming year. Needless to say, the update exceedingly going to be widespread on the latest iPhone series. Nevertheless, the company may have a greater use case for the WiFi 6E – its mixed reality headset.
Moreover, the company’s first-ever item for augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) is anticipated to make its debut in the near future. There are a lot of previous reports around it that have already appeared, including a report by famous Bloomberg analyst Mark Gurman who recommends that the company is going to launch the product “as early as next year.” Apart from this, he further noted that the company will possibly price the device on this higher side and that it is going to have “advanced chips, displays, sensor, and avatar-based features.”
Apple’s headset is possibly going to be the gateway for users to a metaverse, and for this, it is definitely going to require very stable internet connectivity. Providing the headset with WiFi 6E could be the key for California based Cupertino giant to offering a smooth and flawless experience to the users. The company will have a reasonable excuse to offer the WiFi 6E support to iPhones in the coming year as well because these headsets are going to connect to iPhones for their operation.
According to Kuo, the company’s adoption of WiFi 6E is going to support other organizations to switch to WiFi technology for their devices as well. However, looking at things as their current state, several big smartphone manufacturers already have it in their briefcase, and it is, as a matter of fact, Apple, which is going to be getting to the same to the competition as and when it rolls out WiFi 6E on iPhones.
