If you own an iPhone and have a two-band Wi-Fi setup at home, the good news is that iOS 11 will give preference to the 5GHz band instead of 2.4GHz.
They are two distinct transmission patterns, and one of the main differences is that the 5 GHz frequency is wider and has 23 channels of transmission – against 3 channels in the 2.4 GHz – providing less interference. More than a band that does not interfere with the appliances, it offers benefits of speed.
IOS users already know that the iPhone or iPad will connect to the first known Wi-Fi network without ever asking anything about it, regardless of whether it is a 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz network – the criterion is the signal with the greatest strength Unless you have prioritized some specific network. With iOS 11, this is changing.
This is a welcome move from Apple, especially for those who have dual-band Wi-Fi router configurations at home that transmit only on a single SSID (wireless network name). So, instead of connecting to a 2.4 GHz network, the iOS 11 will default to the other band, ensuring all the advantages it can offer.
IOS 11 is already in the third round of beta testing, and the TodoCelular already checked the news in a video with our first impressions.
