New iPhones Get Super-fast Wi-Fi Module and Improved Face ID




Barclays analysts unveiled a new feature for Appleā€™s future flagships. According to their forecasts, the iPhone model range (2019) will get support for a completely new wireless standard – Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax). In addition, experts suggest that Apple will definitely improve the Face ID face recognition technology, making the scanner much faster and more accurate. Apparently, the upcoming new items promise to be interesting.

Currently, all iPhones use fairly old Wi-Fi standards: 802.11n (since 2009) and 802.11ac (since 2011). Apple engineers intend to fix this by equipping the new iPhone with a high-speed module that supports the latest 802.11ax standard. It is reported that the new version of Wi-Fi will have several advantages, namely:

Higher speed and less delay in data transfer;
Exceptional energy efficiency;
Improved security standard;
Increased range.
However, Apple will not be the first if they introduce the latest standard in their smartphones. A similar advanced module is expected to first debut in the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 +. At the same time, analysts emphasize, the iPhone model range (2019) will not receive support from fifth-generation networks, since the infrastructure is not yet ready for this.

Apple also plans to improve Face ID’s own biometric identification technology. According to the source, the company managed to make the face scanner faster and more accurately. In many ways, this is a merit of a more powerful projector points, which will reduce the impact of ambient lighting on the work of Face ID.

According to the WSJ, this year Apple will introduce three iPhones to the public. It is assumed that the appearance of new products will remain the same, except for the number of cameras. It is expected that the most expensive version of the iPhone (2019) will get a triple main camera, and the successor to the iPhone XR will get a dual module.
