iPhone 16 Pro will have Wi-Fi 7 and a 48MP ultrawide camera

iPhone 16 Pro will have Wi-Fi 7 and a 48MP ultrawide camera. Next year’s iPhone Pros, the 16 Pro and 16 Pro Max, will support WiFi 7 and have a new 48MP ultra-wide-angle lens: Jeff Pu, a technology analyst at investment firm Haitong International, has launched the indiscretion Securities of Hong Kong, according to which these new phones (which are not the ones that will be presented in a few weeks but those of September 2024, ed) will be able to send and receive data simultaneously on the 2.4, 5.0 and 6.0 GHz bands.

This will mean faster WiFi speeds, lower latency, and more stable connectivity. Furthermore, thanks to technologies such as 4K QAM, WiFi 7 should travel at 40 Gbps and beyond, therefore four times faster than today’s WiFi 6E, which however is not used (for a short time yet) by any of the Apple iPhones.

Now it’s time for WiFi 6E

It’s a shame because WiFi 6E can already support the 6 GHz band, therefore with more bandwidth than WiFi 6 which is limited to 2.4 and 5.0 GHz, but the good news is that at least the Pro line of the iPhone 15 is coming should support it, thus joining the latest generation iPad Pro, MacBook Pro 14 and 16 inches, Mac Studio, Mac Pro and Mac mini, which also support this latest version of WiFi.

WiFi 6, 6E and 7 in three generations

The progression is therefore rapid and all uphill: from the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max with WiFi 6 we are about to move on to the 15 Pro (and Max) with WiFi 6E; but only for one year, because as early as 2024, with the iPhone 16 Pro and Max, it will jump directly to WiFi 7, with all the advantages described above.

48 MP wide-angle photos

The other novelty, as we said, concerns the new 48 MP ultra-wide-angle lens which should be able to capture more light, therefore with better quality photos when shooting at 0.5x, especially in all those environments where light is scarce .

Today’s iPhone 14 Pros already have a 48MP main camera that uses pixel-binning to get good results in these conditions, so two generations later you’ll get the same benefits, and that’s a big leap as today the ultra-wide is 12 MP.

This probably also means that these phones will be able to take ProRAW photos with the wide angle, and therefore be able to retouch them without loss of quality.
