According to a report in MacRumors, Apple is determined to equip the iPhone 13 series with Wi-Fi 6E support. In this context, Apple is said to have reached Broadcom, which produces Wi-Fi 6E components for the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra.
In a report we shared with you in the past months, we talked about a claim made about the iPhone 13 family, which we expect Apple to announce in September. According to this claim, Apple would make Wi-Fi 6E support a standard with the iPhone 13 family. A new development taking place today supports this claim.
According to a report by MacRumors, a supplier named Skyworks, in which Apple has made serious investments, does not look very favorably on the company’s request for Wi-Fi 6E amplifiers. As such, Apple turned to Broadcom, one of the world’s most popular broadband connection hardware companies. Thus, Broadcom will produce Wi-Fi 6E support units for Apple, after Samsung.
After Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, iPhone 13 may also have Wi-Fi 6E support
Broadcom also produced Wi-Fi 6E supported components for the 2021 flagship phone of the South Korean technology giant Samsung, the Galaxy S21 Ultra. So the company is experienced enough in this field. The claims in MacRumors reveal that Apple also wants to benefit from this experience. However, there is not the slightest sharing of information about the level of negotiations between Broadcom and Apple.
Wi-Fi 6E technology expands all the features of Wi-Fi 6 up to the 6 GHz band. This technology goes beyond 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi connections. This means more broadband and less interference. In addition, many countries, especially the USA, started to allow the unlicensed use of the 6 GHz band. The decision taken has increased the importance of Wi-Fi 6E supported devices in these countries. After Samsung, Apple seems to continue to work in line with the developments and deliver new technologies to the end consumer without wasting time.
