4G / LTE on iPhone 11 Pro gets 13% faster than XS

Every year, the new iPhones perform better not only on overall device performance, but also on specific activities such as browsing speed. 4G / LTE. This was no different with the iPhones 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro MaxBut Apple did not detail, during yesterday's special event, the speed improvement of the new top-of-the-line models.

Technically, the 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max iPhones have the same 4 × 4 MIMO antenna as the XS and XS Max models; The iPhone 11 also follows its predecessor and equipped with a 2 × 2 MIMO modem so far nothing new.

So, the question is: How much faster are the new iPhones (in terms of 4G / LTE navigation) than their predecessors? This is exactly what SpeedSmart wanted to check with the new handsets by comparing more precisely the iPhones 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max with the XS and XS Max.

The new # iPhone11 Pro and Pro Max have 4G (LTE) faster, but how much faster? About 13% faster than iPhone XS, that's a good annual improvement. It looks like they have a better, faster modem. #AppleEvent #SpeedSmart

According to the company, iPhones 11 Pro have 4G / LTE connections. 13% faster than flagships Ma's previous. The results are quite consistent across all major US telephone networks (AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon), meaning they would probably also be seen in tests conducted with Brazilian carriers and represent a reasonable annual increase.

On the other hand, the SpeedSmart test leaves some doubts, such as data collection. According to the chart, the information was posted from August 9th until yesterday, and the new devices were presented exactly this day. This does not mean that the tests are false, but it may be better to wait for other numbers to drop than to hit the hammer in the above result.

Wi-Fi Support 6

As expected, new iPhones also support the Wi-Fi 6, technically known as 802.11ax Wi-Fi. Although faster, the new generation of the wireless network is still in its infancy, but smartphones announced yesterday by Apple can already take advantage of the ultra-speed provided by it.

Wi-Fi 6 specifications are too technical, but it is important to note that the protocol allows devices to send even more data with each transmission (compared to Wi-Fi 5, or 802.11ac Wi-Fi). The new technology also supports a faster transfer rate and can reach 1,320Mbps 40% faster than the previous generation.

Again, that doesn't mean you just have to buy a new iPhone to use the new wireless speeds. First, the Wi-Fi protocol has not yet been officially certified, and another that it is no use having a router that supports 802.11ax networks and your ISP does not offer a plan here.

For all intents and purposes, the good thing is that Wi-Fi 6 support is there, and that the previous generation is still very well used by iPhones.
