    iPhone 12 Pro LTE Speed Test | iPhone 12 Pro vs iPhone X | Both Qualcomm

    Both are on the same carriers (Visible - Verizon LTE) and both are with no cases on them. I tried a few servers around me and iPhone 12 Pro performed better each time compared to my iPhone X with an older version of Qualcomm modem. Very satisfied with the upgrade.

    Spontaneous Wi-Fi to Cell Data Switching

    Hey everyone, I've been an iPhone 11 Pro Max owner since April and am wondering if this is a widespread issue or perhaps it's a defect in hardware. I've noticed as of late that my phone will bounce to cell data while in a perfectly functional Wi-Fi network at home. I'm running iOS 13.5.1, and...

    iPhone 11 iPhone 11 doesn’t have LTE when taking a phone call?

    I noticed that every time I take a phone call, my iPhone 11 switches to 4G until the call is over then switches back to LTE. This happens in every call in multiple locations. Isn’t it supposed to stay in LTE? I don’t know if I never paid attention to this and it was always like that with my...

    iPhone 11 Pro iPhone 11 Pro LTE - noticeably worse than XS (t-mobile?)

    I've had an iPhone 11 Pro for 3 days and noticed phone calls had annoying clicking sounds, and trouble web browsing in areas that have been fine with iPhone XS. Today I started doing SpeedTest from home, to investigate what is wrong, and finding that 80% of time I get very poor response...

    I’m not sure if this is just me looking for a problem or if it’s unrelated to the beta but since update to iOS 13 me cellular service seems weaker. Driving round my village with CarPlay the signal meter is all over the place going from 1 bar Edge all the way up to 4 Bar 4G (LTE) however when...

    Other H Chips and the Implication for W

    Apple changed the chip series name in the new AirPods from W to H, which presumably stands for headphones. Why? I think because Apple will be using the W (wireless) naming for their in-house cellular modem chips for iPhone. So this pretty much confirms it, right?

    I am not sure if this plan is not supposed to work with LTE but people claim it does. I looked up the ATT LTE bands and they match with the Iphone 6 SE LTE bands for all models so theoretically this should work. I downloaded the APN profile from and the 4G works but not LTE. Does...

    Cellular or Wifi?

    I am wondering what is the reason to use a cellular over the wifi? In many countries you can rent a mifi cheaper than a cell + data plan so I'm wondering why do people choose a cellular model?
