Wi-Fi 6E should have been included on iPhone 14 Line up. But, I guess Apple is saving that for iPhone 15.

6Ghz support is not a requirement of WiFi 6e. The 6Ghz spectrum is not (yet) available in every country.
Wrong. The e in 6e stands for 6 Ghz support. It it is still based on the 80211.ax radio interface, but uses 6 GHz where available.

From a reputable router manufacturer TP-Link: https://www.tp-link.com/us/blog/86/what-s-the-difference-between-wifi-6-and-wifi-6e/#:~:text=What is WiFi 6E and,to the 6 GHz band ('https://www.tp-link.com/us/blog/86/what-s-the-difference-between-wifi-6-and-wifi-6e/#:~:text=What%20is%20WiFi%206E%20and,to%20the%206%20GHz%20band').

In fact, WiFi 6E is identical to WiFi 6 with an addition of “E”, which stands for “Extended” — as in an extended number of the usable wireless band, the 6 GHz band. So simply put, WiFi 6E means WiFi 6 extended to the 6 GHz band.

6 GHz is the new frequency band ranging from 5.925 GHz to 7.125 GHz, allowing up to 1,200 MHz of additional spectrum. Unlike the existing bands on which channels are currently crammed into the limited spectrum, the 6 GHz band exists without overlap or interference. Access to the 6 GHz frequency brings more bandwidth, faster speeds, and lower latency, opening up resources for future innovations like AR/VR, 8K streaming, and more.

Honestly, this leaves a sour taste, coming so soon after iPhone 14 "Pro" that doesn't support it.

One reason: Apple wants a lower power consumption WiFi 6E compatible chip first. The larger size of the iPad Pros and the next MacBook Pros will support WiFi 6E now because the power consumption of the WiFi chip is less of an issue.
