New frequency spectrum means faster speed and better reliability.

It was just a few short years ago when we told you about a then-upcoming wireless technology called Wi-Fi 6. At the time, what was once known as 802.11ax was henceforth given a much more consumer-friendly name, and previous convoluted Wi-Fi standards got similar names: 802.11ac became Wi-Fi 5, 802.11n became Wi-Fi 4, and so on.

And now we have an even newer name, Wi-Fi 6E. In short, it’s an updated version of Wi-Fi 6  that includes access to the new 6GHz frequency band. But while it doesn’t bring new technology over Wi-Fi 6, this new frequency could be a huge deal and will make a major impact on the future of wireless networking. Recent rumors suggest that Wi-Fi 6E could show up as early as the iPhone 14.
