The next iPhone XR can adopt the 4×4 MIMO antenna from the current XS

Seeing the rumor of the arrival of Wi-Fi 6 and this, it seems that the news of the next generation of the iPhone will focus on connectivity. In MacRumors have obtained clues that indicate the arrival of 4×4 MIMO antennas to what should be the successor to the iPhone XR . At present, this type of antenna is only found on the top-of-the-range iPhones, the iPhone XS and XS Max.

The current iPhone XR features a 2×2 MIMO antenna design . This makes its 4G LTE signal reception good, but not as good as on the iPhone XS and XS Max where we can download data at even a Gigabit per second where there is adequate coverage to make it possible. In practice we will never be able to download at these speeds on the network, but theoretically it is possible under optimal conditions.

The question we can ask ourselves now is: if the equivalent of an iPhone XR achieves these Gigabit speeds, what are they going to do with the high-end iPhone? It may simply keep the same antennas, or it may be that Apple is oversimplifying iPhones into a single new model and we’re talking about the same terminal in both cases.

I would put on the table the possibility of adopting 5G, but all the Apple rumors that talk about this new mobile communications protocol postpone the idea of the iPhone 5G until 2020. We will have to wait , but it seems clear that one of the bets of the future of the iPhone is to have faster communications.
