    For some reason the WiFi feels slower on the iPad Pro 11 then my iPhone X ( sprint).

    Ifixit’s tear down says the 11” iPad Pro has a Apple / USI 339S00551 Wi-Fi / Bluetooth module.

    iPhone X has a Apple/Murata USI 170821 339S00397 WiFi / Bluetooth module... not sure what technical differ necessarily there are between these.

    Have you done any speed tests to compare what you’re actually getting?

    For what it’s worth, the iPad in question seems to share the same WiFi chip as the iPhone XS (not the Max). iClarified compares the X, XS and XS Max for you so at least you can see how the WiFi chips compare. Not sure what other factors / differences in the iPad Pro design would change the equation.

    That doesn’t make any sense to me. Are you sure that it’s slower than your 11 inch iPad Pro?

    How does it not make sense? Read my statement again then . The WiFi is slower on my iPad Pro 11 then my iPhone X ( sprint). I ended up using all 50gb if my hotspot to download most of my apps.

    Are you saying your WiFi on your iPad Pro 11 is slower than your WiFi in you iPhone X or slower than your cellular on your iPhone X? You keep mentioning sprint which has nothing to do with WiFi. It could be your WiFi is slow regardless. Just go to fast.com in each with WiFi and compare.

    Sprint is the model .... not the other models which at the time used different modems for LTE.... as I been saying the WiFi is slower on my iPad Pro idk how many more times I need to say this. Kind of plain English here . Once again the WiFi is SLOWER on my iPad then my iPhone

    Curious, have you actually ran Speedtest or something to compare if it's objectively slow and not just "feels slower".

    And did you go to fast.com or speedtest.net to compare? How are you connecting to to hotspot (wifi or Bluetooth) and did you try both? If your are connecting via WiFi and that is faster than going directly to WiFi then again that points to a WiFi network issue. Also what type of WiFi are you using? What is your distance from router?

    if your X is faster than your iPad 11 then there is some other factor, people are trying to help you determine that because it typically shouldn’t be. Sorry if that is too complicated for you to comprehend (both the technical questions and that people are trying to help by asking follow up questions).

    There are plenty of people who call all sorts of wireless connections (including cellular) as wifi.

    We also get posts such as "iOS 13 feels slower than iOS 12 on 2nd gen iPad" where we've discovered that the problem is not iOS 13 but something else.

    rumz already gave you the part numbers above. It would help if you answer @azentropy's queries.

    By any chance are you tethering the iPad to your iPhone? Because some carriers cap tethering speed.

    I got an iPad Pro 11 a few months ago and the Wi-Fi appeared to be slower than on my other devices. Speedtest results were the same when they started, but there seemed to be a noticeable delay before they began. It just seemed slower in general use - loading webpages, updating apps, etc.

    I was using the standard router supplied by my ISP. It’s supposed to be a good router although the Wi-Fi range isn’t the best.

    The place where I normally use my iPad was some distance from the router so I relocated it to a more central position in the house, but the problem persisted.

    Further investigation led me to look at the settings of the router. It used synchronised 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi networks. There was no option to disable the 5GHz network so I unticked the box synchronising the networks, renamed the 5GHz network and connected my iPad to the 2.4GHz network. This solved the issue.

    I've just found the following article which confirms what I thought was happening -
    'Different brands of devices may behave differently between 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz frequencies. Apple products are known to favor 5Ghz, so even when the 5Ghz signal is weaker than 2.4Ghz, Apple products may connect to the worse signal.'

    Agreed. Ask a question and then berate the people who respond.

    Familiar?
