A new report from Macotakara claims Apple's next generation iPhone will reportedly feature support for the 802.11ay short range Wi-Fi standard.

According to the reliable source of information for iPhone 12 for the next term, there will be possibility to support IEEE 802.11ay which is near field communication Wi-Fi standard. Apple will be improve the data transfer speed between devices indoor mainly as a Gigabit WiFi technology.

802.11ay uses the 60GHz spectrum which offers multigigabit speeds and much lower latency. Unfortunately, it struggles to penetrate objects and so is limited to short range use. Apple could potentially use it for fast AirDrop transfers between devices.

Qualcomm already has 60GHz Wi-Fi chipsets that could be used in the iPhone:

Signature attributes of 60GHz Wi-Fi go far beyond high performance throughput, as Qualcomm Technologies’ new chipsets enable unique, always-on ambient Wi-Fi sensing capabilities, enabling devices to identify people, objects, movements and precise location without being affected by light conditions. Networking and mobile devices alike can take advantage of these new Wi-Fi sensing features to provide new and differentiated experiences to end users.
