In a recent analysis, data from SpeedSmart, reported via 9to5Mac, suggests that the upcoming iPhone 15 Pro will offer significantly improved 5G connectivity compared to its predecessor, the iPhone 14 Pro.

The data indicates that the iPhone 15 Pro could deliver up to 24% faster download speeds on 5G networks.

The most notable increase in download speeds was observed on Verizon's network, where the iPhone 15 Pro demonstrated an average download speed of 243.06Mbps, compared to the iPhone 14 Pro's 195.83Mbps. T-Mobile also showed significant gains, with the iPhone 15 Pro averaging 300.92Mbps, while the iPhone 14 Pro managed 204.34Mbps on AT&T.

While download speeds on all major carriers improved only slightly, the significant increase in download speeds is likely due to the upgraded modem in the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max.

While Apple has not officially disclosed the modem's specifications, SpeedSmart suggests that the Pro models will feature Qualcomm's Snapdragon X70 modem. Qualcomm markets this modem as offering "unmatched data speeds, coverage, and latency." The Snapdragon X70 modem also includes an integrated AI processor designed to enhance connectivity across various 5G frequencies, including short-wave mmWave signals. Notably, Samsung's Galaxy S23 lineup also incorporates the Snapdragon X70 modem.

Despite rumors that Apple is working on its own in-house 5G modems, the company recently extended its modem supply agreement until 2026, suggesting that Apple users can anticipate continued improvements in 5G connectivity over the next few generations.
