The iPhone 13 will reportedly feature the Wi-Fi 6E protocol

Apple Vision Pro doesn’t have Wi-Fi 6E or Ultra Wideband support.

The upcoming iPhone 13 will sport the improved Wi-Fi 6E protocol, according to DigiTimes. The tech is expected to become a standard feature of both iOS and Android smartphones in 2022, the article adds. 

The Sellers Research Group (that’s me) thinks DigiTimes is right, as it’s a logical step for Apple to take. After all, Wi-Fi 6E adds support for the 6GHz wireless spectrum.

This means faster wireless speeds and lower latencies than previous generations, though you’ll need a new router. Wi-Fi 6E-compatible devices can take advantage of those new airwaves.

In other words, Wi-Fi 6E is a faster, more efficient version of Wi-Fi that allows wireless access points like routers to better manage networks crowded with lots of users and client devices. It’s not a new version of Wi-Fi like Wi-Fi 6, but is a term that identifies Wi-Fi 6 devices that are equipped with the chips and radios needed to operate in that new mass of spectrum the FCC just opened up.
