Apple's iPhone 14 series do not support the WiFi 6E standard

Early this morning, Apple held a new product launch conference and officially released the iPhone 14 series of mobile phones. This series of mobile phones has four models: iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. The starting price is 5999 yuan, and the reservation will be open on September 9.

The iPhone 14 series is equipped with many new technologies, such as the US version of the iPhone 14 series supporting satellite communications. However, Apple missed a major technical update, that is, the iPhone 14 series does not support the WiFi 6E standard, which means that the iPhone 14 series will have poor network connection quality when there are many devices connected to the same network. In addition, the Internet speed of the iPhone 14 series will also be slower.

According to public information, compared with ordinary Wi-Fi 6, the Wi-Fi 6E network has added 6GHz frequency support, which can provide more 160MHz bandwidth channels, thereby reducing interference and improving device network speed. In addition, Wi-Fi 6E enables faster and more secure networking of devices and supports the WPA3 encryption protocol.

Currently, Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, Samsung Galaxy S22+/S22 Ultra, Google Pixel 6 Pro, Motorola X30 / S30, and other models all support the WiFi 6E standard.

On April 23, 2020, the FCC announced the distribution of the 6GHz frequency band to Wi-Fi. Since then, device manufacturers and regulators around the world have begun to take action, rolling out support for Wi-Fi 6E wireless routers and mobile phones.
