The iPhone 15 lineup adds to Apple’s 5G device offerings this year. And according to a test conducted on the Pro models of the series, Qualcomm‘s Snapdragon X70 modem allows the units to have up to 24% faster 5G connectivity.

The test was performed using the HTML5 Internet speed test of SpeedSmart on iPhone 14 and iPhone 15 Pro models from AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon. SpeedSmart noted that the three carriers have an average of over 200 Mbps on 5G across the country and that all of them gained download speeds. In terms of upload speed, however, SpeedSmart said it had observed “minor bumps.”

Meanwhile, the report revealed how fast 5G is on the iPhone 15 Pro models employing the services of three carriers and Qualcomm’s modem. 

“Verizon had the biggest gain with the new phones being 24% faster, T-Mobile a close second at 22% faster but with 300 Mbps being the average download speed across the country,” SpeedSmart shared. “AT&T had a 14.6% faster average download speed.”

Aside from better 5G connectivity, the Pro models of this year’s line have also received Wi-Fi 6E. This “extended” Wi-Fi 6 will bring the Pro models better connectivity, albeit it needs a Wi-Fi 6E router. It allows more bandwidth, faster speeds, and lower latency compared to Wi-Fi 6 and can access a new 6 GHz band. According to recent rumors, Apple is planning to push it further in iPhone 16 by introducing Wi-Fi 7.
