The 5G connection on the iPhone 15 Pro could be up to 25% faster than on the iPhone 14 Pro.
Do you remember when the 5G connection was new? The iPhone 12 and 12 Pro were the first to offer this new connectivity to the Apple public, showing that you can always navigate faster. Even Apple would have only released an iOS update to activate the technology worldwide.
The new connection is already ready in most countries in the world, so now it only needs to be improved, and Apple has done it for the first time since its departure. What does this mean? The iPhone 15 Pro has improved the 5G connection significantly and there is some data to prove it.
Does 5G improve in the new iPhone? Yes, quite
Since 2020 The 5G connection has been a constant in Apple devices. 3 years later, Apple has improved the experience with the fastest mobile connection available today. With the arrival of the iPhone 15 Pro, it has been shown that there will be improvements in full 5G performance, all thanks to the new Qualcomm modem installed in the device.
SpeedSmart, a renowned website that does speed testshas released new data about the improvements that the connection will have in the near future. The website has carried out speed tests in the United States with the 5G connection from companies such as AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon, using the new Apple devices that use Qualcom’s X70 modem.
According to the study, The improvements can be seen in 3 main areas:
- Significantly lower energy consumption gains.
- Better capabilities to take advantage of 5G operators.
- Improved connectivity for an iPhone when away from a cell tower.
SpeedSmart has mentioned that The complete improvement of the 5G connection on the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max is an average of 24%this compared to the speeds currently perceived by owners of the iPhone 14 Pro line.
The improvements, as we have already mentioned, can be seen in the improved download speed in all aspectsbut there are also increases in loading speed and Ping times.
All three major US networks saw significant gains in download speeds, with small increases in upload speeds that we expected. An average download speed of 255 Mbps on 5G is very impressive.
After a general conclusion, Speedtest has also mentioned that increases may be better at some companies than others. This is not a surprise, since exactly the same thing happens in Spain, because it depends more than anything on the antennas and their power.
Verizon made the biggest gain with the new phones being 24% faster, T-Mobile is close behind with 22% faster, but with 300 Mbps as the average download speed nationwide. AT&T had a 14.6% faster average download speed. It is very impressive to show the 3 networks averaging over 200 Mbps on 5G across the country.
It should be noted that this improvement It is not only available on iPhonesince Qualcomm’s X70 modem is available in high-end Android phones that have been launched this year and will be launched in the middle of next year.
What’s up with Apple’s new 5G modem?
In January we mentioned that Apple could launch its own 5G modem, ‘Made by Apple’. This would allow you to take advantage of the maximum capabilities of this mobile connection.giving the user an advantage over Android phones.
Until now, Qualcomm had always been the company chosen to provide the iPhone with 5G connectivity chips. After the legal dispute between Apple and Qualcomm due to a lack of understanding in economic agreements, the firm with the bitten apple logo decided to design its own processors and relegate the development of the rest of the hardware components to other manufacturers.
This is an almost confirmed rumor (since Apple has not said anything about it)but according to leaks, this new new chip would arrive as soon as next year, so it is possible that iPhone 16 Pro already has a new 5G modem, so we must expect improvements in the 5G connection during the next launch, although it also depends more on the speed of the operators.
