With the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max a few days away from the release, users want as much information as possible about the new phones. Today, SpeedSmart, a service that allows you to test your wireless connection speed, does ed the first tests of LTE speeds at the three largest American providers, on the new set of iPhones.
The most interesting thing is that SpeedSmart tests the iPhone XS with the outgoing iPhone X. From the first round of tests it seems that the iPhone XS has enormous advantages over its predecessor, the iPhone X.
For those who are unaware, it can seem like Apple has finally cracked the code on wireless networks. However, this is simply due to the fact that Apple has added 4 × 4 MIMO to their iPhone XS line of phones. This technology has been available on Android handsets for a long time, and it's good to see that Apple is finally joining the club.
The outgoing iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus and even the upcoming iPhone XR contain only 2 × 2 MIMO. This means that you will unfortunately not see these improvements, even in the upcoming iPhone XR, unless you have the iPhone XS or XS Max.
Apart from 4 × 4 MIMO, the new iPhone XS and XS Max also receive support for QAM and LAA, which are other radio technologies that will help improve the speed and range of the new phones.
Apple & # 39; s iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are planning to release this Friday, next to the new Apple Series 4. Will you get some new stuff on Friday?
