What to Know About iPhone 16’s Wi-Fi 7: An Informative Look

Now more than ever, Apple has a reason to offer this standard!

Apple offers the latest in connectivity for its devices. While the iPad Pro and Mac already have Wi-Fi 6 and the same update is expected to come to the iPhone 15, the company is already working on adopting Wi-Fi 7 compatibility next year. The information has been shared by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

According to the report, this decision is aimed at offering improvements in speed, reliability, and in the ability of different Wi-Fi 7 devices to interact with each other. According to the international association of Companies that owns the Wi-Fi trademark, Wi-Fi Alliance Wi-Fi 7 could offer peak data speeds of more than 40 Gbps, making it up to four times faster than Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E, which offers just 9.6 Gbps, and almost six times faster than Wi-Fi 5.

Full speed and more

In addition to offering impressive speeds, Wi-Fi 7 will also introduce something called Multi-Link Operation. So while the move from Wi-Fi 65 to Wi-Fi 6 focused on speed, the jump from Wi-Fi 6 to Wi-Fi 7 will also bring an exponential increase in the number of devices that can connect to a Wi-Fi network simultaneously.

According to the publication Dongknows, Some of the most important features of Wi-Fi 7 include:

  • Offers a channel of up to 320 MHzdouble what is offered through Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E and is one of the main causes of the benefits that the standard offers.
  • Optimization for smart devices to improve latency, response time, and efficiency.
  • Better connectivity in public places such as airports, stadiums, and office buildings.
  • backwards compatibility with which it will not be necessary to replace all electronic devices to use this technology.

Despite all the obvious improvements, this is a feature that will take a long time before most users can take advantage of it. These will need to upgrade their entire Wi-Fi router system to one that supports Wi-Fi 7, which will be an expensive process.

However, Apple’s interest in achieving this adoption is now much greater. Given that this update will be key to taking advantage of the key functions of products such as Vision Pro. As the Wi-Fi Alliance itself explains, the standard supports increasing data from today’s technology, including augmented reality and virtual reality. These types of technology require high-speed, low-latency performance like that offered by Wi-Fi 7.
