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?
