    During its media event on Tuesday, Apple revealed that the new iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max feature faster gigabit-class 4G LTE, but the company didn't provide any further details. However, an internet speed testing service claims to have the numbers.


    According to Speedsmart.net, the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max offer approximately 13 percent faster 4G LTE than Apple's previous generation iPhone XS series.

    The results were taken over all of the major US cellular networks, and while there's little between the carriers in terms of fastest speed, T-Mobile and Verizon appear to edge it.

    Given that the new iPhones aren't yet available, it's not entirely clear how the data was collected "from August 9," although the results are said to have been taken with the SpeedSmart Speed Test App.

    Regardless, further tests are inevitable once the new devices get into the hands of reviewers on September 20, by which time we'll know for sure if these results in any way reflect real-world usage.

    I think the 11 pro is gonna be a beautiful phone. 13% faster LTE speeds is definitely a nice boost. Don’t know why people are so upset with it. Apple continues to produce the nicest phones on the market. We’re way past the days of big excitement leading up to announcement day to see what cool design apple came up with. Hardware has matured. Everything is a rectangle with glass. Now it’s camera, features, and subscriptions. Except for the notch. But I’m very happy with what the 11pro has to offer. I’m on the upgrade program so I’ll be getting it. And I’m pretty excited.

    This is good news because they'll still be intel modems.
    I held off in part from the Xs because of the many reported cellular issues

    Incremental until 5G implementation comes along next year and blows these speeds away.

    I totally agree. I personally would stick with my Xs Max because I'd like to give Apple some time to add more features, but the battery and camera upgrades are already growing on me, so it the green color.

    I wonder if this thanks to Intel modem or QC one?!
    And i hope the signal to be better and more reliable...because an 15% increase at peek of it is not the real deal

    I remember seeing the article last year saying T-Mobile users were gonna get a big boost in speed with the Xs... that solidified my decision to update... and yet a year later I’m still pretty sure my iPhone 7 was marginally faster...

    Probably safe to assume these tests were conducted in an environment with excellent coverage, where the XS Max has been fine in my experience. The real question is whether they're any better in borderline coverage areas, where the XS Max is...not great.

    Imagine how long that would take to sync to your desktop. My 128GB takes up to 20 minutes to sync on my MBP. They definitely need thunderbolt connectivity.
