The famous Japanese edition Mac Otakara has shared new data about the next Apple smartphone. According to the authors of the resource, the iPhone 12 will receive support for the new Wi-Fi standard – 802.11ay.
In fact, 802.11ay is the successor to 802.11ad. It has quadrupled bandwidth and up to four receive streams. The new Wi-Fi standard operates in the 60 GHz spectrum.
The journalists note that while work on the standard 802.11ay is still ongoing. However, they should be completed by the end of the year. It is possible that besides the iPhone, other Apple devices will also receive support for the new standard. True, the authors of Mac Otakara do not specify exactly when this will happen.
Also, the journalists of the Japanese edition note that in addition to the increased bandwidth, the 802.11ay standard may bring with it a number of other improvements. In particular, it can allow you to quickly connect two iPhones together, which are in close proximity to each other.
