A study affirms that the mobile data of the iPhone XS Max doubles in speed to a 5s — 2022

A study carried out by OpenSignal between October 26, 2018 and January 24 of this year would have determined that The iPhone XS Max would be up to twice as fast in its LTE connections than the iPhone 5s . Below we show you more details about this study as well as the possible reasons why the latest Apple device exceeds the 2013 version with this clearance, despite not cutting itself when it comes todo not consume mobile data on iOS.

What average download speeds do the iPhone XS Max have compared to the older ones?

The devices that were the object of the study carried out by OpenSignal operated in USA . In this analysis, it was possible to extract average LTE download information from iPhone users, being the XS Max the fastest with an average of 21.7 Mbps discharge compared to 10.2 Mbps of the 5s.

On the standard 5.8-inch iPhone XS, the average download speed with mobile data was set to 17,6 Mbps. For their part, the iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus and X obtained averages that ranged between 15,6 Mbps y 17,1 Mbps.

The main reason why we find these differences in download speeds is found in the OpenSignal study itself and is that they attribute this to the device components . While the newer iPhones we find somewhat improved antenna technologies and designs with 4 × 4 MIMO support, in the older ones we find 2 × 2 MIMO support.

Also in this study emphasis is placed on the socioeconomic factors What might these differences mean? It is intuited that a user who continues to use an iPhone 5s in 2019 may not financially support the purchase of a next-generation device and that this lack of financial resources forces him to contract rates with operators with lower coverage and speeds compared to the main companies. telephone in the country.

At La Manzana Mordida, beyond wanting to make the socioeconomic conclusions our own, we understand that it is logical that an iPhone designed in 2013 has certain limitations compared to models designed in 2018 . After all, the technology in internal components such as modems is advancing every year and this translates into improvements in download speed beyond the telephone operator that is available.
