The iPhone 15 Pro was rumored to be the first iPhone to support Wi-Fi 6E, and Apple’s tech specs page for the new phone does confirm the inclusion of faster Wi-Fi speeds.
According to Apple’s tech specs webpage, both the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max support the enhanced Wi-Fi standard, which is considerably faster than Wi-Fi 6. The upgraded standard supports higher bandwidth and extended range with Wi-Fi 6E-ready routers thanks to the 6GHz frequency band.
Wi-Fi 6E support is supposedly enabled by new wireless chips and the A17 Pro, Apple’s first 3nm processor. For this reason, the base iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus continue to rely on Wi-Fi 6, as the pair are equipped with the year-old A16 Bionic chip.
The iPhone 15 Pro joins a handful of other Apple devices with Wi-Fi 6E support, including the most recent iPad Pro, and the latest Mac models with Apple silicon like the MacBook Pro, Mac mini, Mac Studio, and Mac Pro.
