The iPhone 15 Pro could come with better 5G connectivity. That is according to SpeedSmart data (through 9to5Mac), indicating that the iPhone 15 Pro will offer up to 24 percent faster 5G download speeds compared to its predecessor, the iPhone 14 Pro.
As SpeedSmart data shows, the biggest jump came on Verizon’s network, which showed an average download speed of 195.83 Mbps on the iPhone 14 Pro, up from 243.06 Mbps on the iPhone 15 Pro. While Meanwhile, T-Mobile’s iPhone 15 Pro had the fastest average 5G download speeds at 300.92 Mbps, compared to AT&T’s 204.34 Mbps.
Despite this considerable change, upload speeds only increased slightly on the three major operators. The reason for the improvement probably has to do with an update to the modem of the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max.
While Apple hasn’t mentioned what type of modem the devices come with, SpeedSmart says the Pro models feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon The modem also comes with a built-in AI processor that is supposed to improve your connection on 5G frequencies, including shortwave mmWave signals. The Snapdragon X70 modem also comes in Samsung’s Galaxy S23 lineup.
