Compare iPhone 6 Plus to 5S by Wi-Fi Speed Test Results

Though there is only one year difference when you look at iPhone 6 Plus vs iPhone 5S, the reality is these are two different smartphones with different power. Apple knows how to improve its handset line and attract millions of new customers who will die for buying a new gen iDevice.


Both models can run iOS 8 and enjoy its features. But the new iPhone 6 Plus speed test shows how far ahead this device goes compared to the 5S version.

Thanks to guys at iClarified, we can now see the results of the Wi-Fi speed test. Wi-Fi connectivity issues were discussed by a lot of iOS 8 users who reported problems, slow connection etc. Most problems were faced by users with older iPhone 4S.

The iPhone 5S supports 802.11n Wi-Fi while the 6 Plus model supports 802.11ac Wi-Fi. It looks like these number have a lot in common, but “ac” version offers faster connection speeds. Yep, it can be up to three times quicker than “n” version.

When you compare iPhone 6 Plus to 5S through Wi-Fi speed test you can see that the earlier version of Apple smarthone that is connected to the 2013 Apple AirPort Extreme [this stated supports 802.11ac] can’t offer you more than 101 Mbps while the 6 Plus model boasts the download speeds of 278 Mbps.

Users who have the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus version can improve their Wi-Fi experience if they get a router that doesn’t limit you by ISP connection and supports the “ac” Wi-Fi.

How fast is your iPhone running iOS 8? Do you have problems with Wi-Fi or not?

Phone 6 Download Speed vs. iPhone 5S Speed [LTE Speed Test]

Check out this interesting iPhone 6 Plus / iPhone 6 LTE speed test and compare it with the previous iPhone 5S options.

Take a look at this iPhone 6 Plus / iPhone 6 LTE speed test results and maybe it can influence your decision and make you wish to find the brand new seventh gen Apple smartphone under the Christmas tree.


Millions of customers in the U.S. and across the world have already got their new iPhone from Apple. The two models, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, are reported to get a better wireless connectivity feature and, as a result, much faster LTE download speeds. Is it true? Is iPhone 5S slower than the new versions?

According to one test, iPhone 6 download speed can reach up to 150 Mbps. Is this enough for browing web sites, listening to music, watching videos, calling your friends, family etc.? We’ll answer with the iPhone 5S LTE speed test results. The previous model can’t reach 150 Mbps.

As iPhone 6 Plus / iPhone 6 4G LTE speed test shows, these two devices can improve speeds through Qualcomm chip. Can it really reach the speed mentioned above in reality?

The LTE speed test between iPhone 5S and iPhone 6 showed that the earlier iPhone model is capable of reaching up to 36 Mbps while the iPhone 6 can go over 101 Mbps. The results were achieved thanks to the Ookla Speedtest.net program.

iOS 8.1 Exploit “Date Trick” Killed by Apple


It looks like the possibility of iOS 8.1 emulators is killed by Apple that has reportedly patched one exploit known as “Date Trick.” Of course, users will still be able to install and use different emulators on their iDevice but only if they jailbreak.

iPhone and iPad owners who could earlier play NES games on their iDevice without jailbreaking might not be able to do so after updating to iOS 8.1 which is expected to be launched this October. iOS 8.1 “Date Trick” once beling killed can’t help you install emulators if you haven’t jailbroken your system.

Developers who are testing betas of future iOS 8.1 say that Apple patches iOS 8.1 exploit responsible for emulators support. Hopefully, the company haven’t killed and won’t patch iOS 8.1 exploits that are used by hackers for creating iOS 8 jailbreak tools.

Right now a lot of user keep their fingers crossed and believe that Apple won’t close all the loopholes this year and we’ll see the untether iOS 8 jailbreak before or after Christmas.

Hackers are currently silent about the stage of iOS 8 jailbreak development but different reports promise they are working on the programs. At least, Pangu team and Evad3rs are known to work on the new jailbreak.
