Wi-Fi 6E may be limited to iPhone 15 Pro models, shows alleged internal Apple document

It looks like Apple will use wireless connectivity as a differentiator for its next iPhone lineup, if you believe this new rumor. A few days ago we reported that the iPhone 15 would come with Wi-Fi 6E. Now, a new leak with an alleged internal document from Apple shows that this feature will be limited to the Pro models.

According to this leak from Unknownz21 (@URedditor), as reported by MacRumors, the vanilla iPhone 15 models will not get this feature. Apple recently began introducing the latest Wi-Fi generation into its products, starting with the new M2 chip-based Macs.

Could this mean the iPhone 15 will get the older A16 chip?

This leak comes with a compelling antenna architecture document showing the wireless implementation for the iPhone 15 models. The diagram shows the antenna details for the iPhone D8x, which is supposed to refer to the Pro models, while the iPhone D3y designation is supposed to be for the vanilla iPhone 15 models.
