The new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max feature support for Wi-Fi 6, the next generation of Wi-Fi. The technology offers significant capacity, performance, and latency improvements over 802.11ac.
In previous years we've used an AirPort Extreme for Wi-Fi speed testing; however, since that router is discontinued and doesn't feature Wi-Fi 6 support, we've used the Netgear Nighthawk AX6000 (which is currently on sale for 26% off) for this test. A Mac Pro was wired directly to the router using link aggregation for a max theoretical transfer speed of 2Gbps.
During our tests we measured a 20-25% speed improvement with the new iPhones. Top speeds consistently reached over 800Mbps, a noticeable gain over previous generation devices.
