- Barclays believes the iPhone 13 lineup with support Wi-Fi 6E.
- The technology would bring less congestion and more bandwidth to the new iPhones.
As reported by MacRumors, the iPhone lineup that will be released this fall will feature Wi-Fi 6E support, according to Barclays analysts Blayne Curtis and Thomas O'Malley.
The report also notes that Broadcom is already supplying Samsung with a Wi-Fi 6E chip for its new Galaxy S21 Ultra.
As noted by MacRumors, devices using Wi-Fi 6E will enjoy more bandwidth and less interference due to the technology's ability to expand beyond 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz, which is currently used by most devices.
Barclays made the same prediction in December of 2020 in a report that also aimed to squash rumors of Apple releasing an iPhone SE Plus in 2021.
