As we go to the release of the iPhone XS, the first speed tests bully what we can expect when it comes to LTE speeds at major airlines. According to the results of SpeedSmart.net, iPhone XS and XS Max will be much better than the iPhone X last year.
Of the three major providers – ATT, Verizon and T-Mobile – ATT appears to be the fastest with average download speeds of 72.24 Mbps. This figure can be compared with average recorded iPhone X speeds of 27.67 Mbps.
Verizon was the second fastest in this test, with average downloads of 62.20 Mbps, an increase of 26.08 Mbps. T-Mobile came in a good third place with 59.92 Mbps on the iPhone XS, compared with 29.82 Mbps on the iPhone X.
When viewing the increases, the new iPhone XS and XS Max show a 233 percent average increase in download speed in the three networks.
Upload speeds were slightly less impressive, with an iPhone XS on T-Mobile at 19.35 Mbps, an increase of 12.22 Mbps on iPhone X. Verizon and ATT reached 16.10 Mbps and 14.88 Mbps respectively, an increase of 10 , 92 Mbps and 10.28 Mbps.
The research has been taken using the SpeedSmart Speed Test app on iPhone X, XS, XS Max between 12 and 16 September. Although they are early and certainly limited because of a small size, the results show impressive profits that should be in line with the speeds that consumers can expect. .
The greatly improved data transfer statistics come thanks to the new Gigabit class LTE with 4×4 MIMO technology and LAA. With iPhone X, Apple used two LCP FCPBs to control 2×2 MIMO, while the iPhone 8-series used a single LCP module. The integration of 4×4 MIMO standards with iPhone XS and XS Max provides a much better bandwidth that can support higher throughput.
