According to some latest reports, Apple plans to add Wi-Fi 6E support to some of its latest iPhones. According to a research note by Barclays analysts Blayne Curtis and Tom O’Malley, the iPhone 15 Pro series will most likely include Wi-Fi 6E.
If true, iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will be the first phones to ship with this technology. However, the standard iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus will stick with regular Wi-Fi 6.
iPhone 15 Pro series is expected to come with Wi-Fi 6E
Wi-Fi 6 operates on the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands, while Wi-Fi 6E also operates on the 6 GHz band for more bandwidth. Wi-Fi 6E offers faster wireless speeds, lower latency and less signal interference. It performs better when connected to a Wi-Fi 6E router. There are many brands like TP-Link, Asus and Netgear that have launched Wi-Fi 6E routers.

It appears that Wi-Fi 6E will enable faster and more reliable wireless connectivity on iPhone 15 Pro models.
Apple has already added Wi-Fi 6E to a handful of iPad Pro and Mac models since last year:
- 11-inch iPad Pro (2022)
- 12.9-inch iPad Pro (2022)
- 14-inch MacBook Pro (2023)
- 16-inch MacBook Pro (2023)
- Mac mini (2023)
- MacStudio (2023)
- Mac Pro (2023)
Likewise, the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max will be the first iPhones with Wi-Fi 6E support. The previous iPhone 14 lineup is limited to regular Wi-Fi 6.
Additionally, Apple will also bring USB-C port charging to the upcoming iPhone 15 series. The company will most likely launch the iPhone 15 series in the first half of September. We are not sure of the actual launch date yet.
Apple has not yet released any information about this. But we will get more details in the near future.
