I hope so.
Didn't ipod touches have the Wireless N module? They just weren't activated.
I hope it does.
why? it doesn't matter for internet...
n is only better for intra-network transfers, not for getting wifi on the phone
Yes, but only for the superior chip ... It will be disabled.
i'd like to kill the wireless-g on my router and stick with only wirless-n. everything i own that has wireless is on n except my and my wife's iphones.
I sure hope so!
n has better range.. I have no idea if it has a positive or negative effect on power though.
yup. i'd want it more for the range than the speed.
so far n at least how apple does it has worse range. I bet it takes a fair amount more power too.
More range = more power.
So count on all the whiners on/after release day stating they get terrible battery life after browsing the internet nonstop connected to N networks. Each year it's something new.
People want N but don't realize it draws more power. So on, so forth.
802.11n radios still consume too much power for the iPhone. Hell, even 802.11g consumes too much. I bet it'll still be 802.11g. Why? Apple hasn't even unrestricted full xxx.11g access. Wi-Fi on the iPhone is capped at 12 Mb/s, where as 802.11g can push up to 54 Mb/s.
Have to correct you a bit here.
G network connect at 54 MBit not 54 Mb/s and 54Mbit is a bit over 5Mb/s but as G network is build to only use half speed for up and for down then you get at max speed around 2.4-2.5 Mb/s
that is one of the things that N changes on. but i am guessing you mean it only pull around 12 MBit (Aka B speeds more or less)
Dude, Mb = megabit and MB = megabyte (not Mbit = megabit and Mb = megabyte, as you seem to think). Also 54 Mb/s is 6.75 MB/s, not "a bit over 5."
Ok i my mistake.
I am just used to from my time at router support we always used Mbit as the consumer customers then did not mix them together and still did i mix them... lol..
And yes the max speed on 54 Mbit is 6.75 MB/s but with the overlap you are around 4.8 - 5.4 MB/s if you could get the full 54 Mbit in dl (You can with 108 Mbit mimo routers)
What's your point? Converting a number from megabits to megabytes doesn't imply that you are suddenly talking about throughput instead of bandwidth. Of course there is networking overhead, but that's not what jav6454 was talking about in the post you were responding to; he was talking about the total bandwidth of wireless G vs the capped bandwidth of the iPhone's wireless G. Nor was it what you were talking about in your post; you made no reference to network overhead, you merely said "54Mbit is a bit over 5Mb/s."
Will iPhone 4G/HD have 802.11n?
So, will it?
The ipad has Wi-Fi support for 802.11a/b/g/n so I'd assume that the new iphone will.
How about bluetooth 3.0?
Would be nice if it did.
i dont think it will since mobile devices will never need the throughput of 300mbps.. 54mbps is sufficient for now. But for range coverage it would be nice. But then that means a heavier duty on the battery.
For the bluetooth, I hope they add file transfer!!
300 Mbps would make sense for wireless sync of music and videos...
