The iPhone 13 series will definitely support Wi-Fi 6E, says Barclays analyst

Peter, 27 January 2021

Last month an analyst from Barclays reported that Apple may equip the iPhone 13 family with Wi-Fi 6E connectivity. Now the same analyst repeats the claim but with more certainty.

This is good news for Broadcom, which is expected to supply the Wi-Fi modem for the new iPhones, just like it did for the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, the first phone to feature 6E support.

Wi-Fi 6E uses a newly-allocated frequency band (at 6 GHz), which will be a boon for those living in apartments – a way to escape the crowded 5 GHz band. Also, 6 GHz signals have a hard time going through walls, which will further reduce the interference from neighboring networks.

The iPhone 13 series will definitely support Wi-Fi 6E, says Barclays analyst

The new standard promises a higher bandwidth with seven 160MHz channels (or fourteen 80MHz). Latency will be lower too, which will improve wireless screen sharing (and streaming games from a computer or console).

Apple was one of the first to support Wi-Fi 6, starting with the iPhone 11 generation. The 13 series is expected in September.
