The leaks on the new iPhone continue to increase, and although we have a new iPhone model just around the corner, the iPhone 12 are still scheduled by the end of the year. Awaiting the new iPhone 9, SE 2, although it may not be called that, the iPhone 12 promises to arrive with great news, both of functions and design.

We all hope that the final design the device resembles that of the current iPad Pro, and also delete or trim the upper notch. We also hope to see a new ToF sensor in the rear camera module, new screen sizes and, perhaps, a new color. Now new rumors have reappeared that reveal very interesting news.

New Wi-Fi for iPhone 12

According to the sources consulted by the Japanese media Macotakara, everybody the iPhone 12 will include a new WiFi specification, 802.11a, which is currently in the development phase and is expected to be completed by the end of the year. The 802.11a Wi-Fi uses a 60 GHz spectrum, very separate from the 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz bands used in the router we all have at home, to offer data transfer between high bandwidth devices.

Macotakara describes 802.11a Wi-Fi support as an "ultra-short range" that makes it similar to Bluetooth, but with much faster data transfer speeds.
