No iPhone 14 or iPhone 14 Pro Model Supports Latest Wi-Fi 6E Standard

None of the new iPhone 14 models support the latest Wi-Fi 6E standard and instead remain limited to Wi-Fi 6, according to Apple's tech specs.

iphone 14 models
Rumors previously suggested that the new iPhones would support Wi-Fi 6E, but Apple's website confirms that the ‌iPhone 14‌, ‌iPhone 14‌ Plus, ‌iPhone 14‌ Pro, and ‌iPhone 14‌ Pro Max are limited to Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) with 2x2 MIMO.

Wi-Fi 6E offers the features and capabilities of Wi-Fi 6, including higher performance, lower latency, and faster data rates, extended into the 6 GHz band. The additional spectrum provides a lot more airspace beyond existing 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi, resulting in increased bandwidth and less interference for devices that support Wi-Fi 6E.

Wi-Fi 6 has been supported since the iPhone 11.

This is the most disappointing news today. 6E should have been there since iPhone 13.

They had to save something iterative for the announcement of the revolutionary iPhone 15 that is only 12 months away!

My early prediction: The 15 is going to be the fastest, most extreme, brightest, best iPhone ever made!

They focused on removing the sim card tray to give us all e-sim instead of leaving users with choice i'm someone who switches from phone to phones in a week and while it was rumored this is a no buy for me and i think it will turn of a lot of people here in the us who have multiple phones e-sim can be a pain to setup ive tried it
