Report: iPhone 13 models may support Wi-Fi 6E

The iPhone 13, which will be launch next year, is expected to support WiFi 6E, which will bring faster internet speeds. The report mentioned that iPhone 13 models may support WiFi 6E, which provides opportunities for RF chip manufacturer Skyworks.

Wi-Fi 6’s growth into the 6 GHz spectrum is a game-changer for two reasons – the availability of the additional channels and the ability to finally use 160Mhz for high bandwidth applications like AR and VR,” said Cisco executive Jayanthi Srinivasan.

Both the iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 series support the standard, non-6GHz version of WiFi 6, as does the second-generation iPhone SE. The analyst also said that audio chipmaker Cirrus Logic will provide new power conversion chips for at least some iPhone 13 models, but it is unclear whether this move will have obvious consumer-oriented benefits.

WiFi 6E is a brand new field that WiFi 6 technology has entered-extending WiFi 6 to the 6GHz frequency band. Earlier this year, the WiFi Alliance officially named this new WiFi 6 technology field as WiFi 6E. In other words, extending WiFi 6 to the 6GHz frequency band can be called WiFi 6E.

Compared with the existing WiFi 6, the advantage of WiFi 6E is the improvement after the introduction of the 6GHz frequency band, which provides richer spectrum resources.
