This is good news!!!
Ya, I was a bit bothered that the 3gs wasn't on the 802.11n network.
Nice catch! Surprised they didn't mention this...
Link to specs
Ah ha. Missed that.
And like the 802.11g specification, it'll be throttled to prevent battery drain. I bet they added 802.11n to prevent iPhone users from being cut out from 802.11n networks only.
I don't care so much about being throttled since my current internet service is 15Mbps anyway, I like the better range. I'll actually be able to walk outside my house to my driveway and stay on wifi without dropping to 1 bar and slowing down.
That is another good thing, but my connection is throttles (10Mb/s where the original connection is 30Mb/s)
good news really
i can browse in my room
Wireless syncing in the next iTunes update?
Finally, 802.11 n. Several years late, but done finally.
I'm pretty sure Apple will be using that Broadcom chip mentioned quite a while back that has super-low power consumption yet provides 802.11n. If they do throttle, I can't imagine it'll be by much.
This was one thing I was ecstatic to see as well.
Actually was hoping for 5GHz N...
Oh well. Better than nothing.
But the 802.11n support is restricted to the 2.4GHz band.
(Edit: Scooped by smithrh!)
totally stoked about this.
so does 2.4ghz reach farther but have less data width/speed? or is it the other way around?
The new iPhone has 802.11n.
THe FCC docs confirm that this product finally has 802.11n. How much does it drain the battery compared to normal wifi?
apple also confirmed this on their Tech Specs for the iPhone. But if only works over 2.4GHz network, not 5GHz
Yea we know, thanks. Jobs confirmed that in the keynote.
Yeah, and here's where we discuss it further. Thanks.
I'm curious myself about the power consumption of 802.11n. Do we have any other battery powered devices using "n"?
Yep, your MacBook (pro)
and the iPad.
2.4ghz just has more interference with other things that use the same frequency so you can't maximize your throughput. With 5Ghz, you would actually experience what wireless N really is.
I was hoping for 5GHz too, maybe that will change on 4GS.
Does anybody know if this phone will have 4G Mobile network capability or is it going to just be on 3G network? Reason i'm asking is because I think rumor is ATT will deploy 4G network at the end of the year.
It be pointless to buy a 3G phone and not be able to get on 4G network...
