According to SpeedSmart, an Internet communication speed measurement tool, the 5G modem chip installed in the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max is Qualcomm's Snapdragon X70 . With the adoption of Snapdragon X70, the iPhone 15 Pro's power consumption has been significantly reduced, 5G carrier aggregation functionality has been improved, and connectivity appears to be improved even when the iPhone is away from a mobile network base station.
The graph below summarizes the results of measuring the communication speed of iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro during 5G communication by mobile carrier. The iPhone 15 Pro has faster 5G communication speeds on major American carriers AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon, and you can see that the download speed has improved significantly. In addition, SpeedSmart uses four models to measure communication speed: iPhone 15 Pro, iPhone 15 Pro Max, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Pro Max, and the average for 5G communication of iPhone 15 Pro (and iPhone 15 Pro Max) Download speed is 255Mbps.
Verizon had the largest increase in communication speed, with 5G download speeds 24% faster. Next, T-Mobile is 22% faster and AT&T is 14.6% faster. Regarding this test result, SpeedSmart wrote, ``It is a very impressive result that the average download speed exceeds 200 Mbps in communication speed tests conducted throughout the United States.''
In addition to speed, it seems that the ping value was also measured, but there seems to be no big difference between the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro. Therefore, SpeedSmart notes that future iPhones may have improved upload speeds and reduced ping values.
It has been rumored that Apple is developing its own 5G modem chip, but before the release of the iPhone 15 series, it was revealed that the company had extended its contract with Qualcomm for the supply of 5G modem chips. Ta.
