While designs on the iPhone XS and iPhone XR may not seem too different compared to the iPhone X, the smartphone maker did make sure there were adequate changes made under the hood that some users might not notice. For example, Apple included three new radio technologies in which tests have proved that it improved upon LTE speeds.
Now, according to a new report, it seems that Apple could be making another change under the hood for its 2019 iPhones with the addition of WiFi 6. The report claims that next-gen iPhones will indeed come with support for the latest WiFi standard.
Over the years, our WiFi standards have been evolving constantly, but due to the naming schemes that were used in the past, it just ended up being more confusing than helpful. The WiFi 6 standard was announced last year and some of the changes and improvements we can expect include faster speeds, a greater range, increased capacity, reduced latency, and also better security.
One of the features of WiFi 6 is also “target wake time” which is designed to help make the WiFi radios in our devices smarter where it will know when to go to sleep and when to wake up, thus saving your devices from wasting battery when not in use.
