I’m confused! Does the iPad Pro M2 (4th generation) support 6 GHz?
It’s mentioned on this kbase:
“Wi-Fi 6E uses the 6 GHz wireless band to enable faster and more reliable wireless connections on supported devices. Here’s how to get the best wireless performance when using Wi-Fi 6E with an Apple device.”
But on the iPad’s specs page it’s mentioned:
“Wi‑Fi 6E (802.11ax) with 2×2 MIMO, simultaneous dual band (2.4GHz and 5GHz)”
I only have two WiFi 6 « E » clients for now but I want to use the 6 GHz band with an Unifi Entreprise AP.
Does the iPad Pro M2 (4th generation) support 6Ghz Wi-Fi?
The short answer is yes, it supports 6GHz Wi-Fi.
Basically, Wi-Fi 6E is compatible with Wi-Fi 6 and legacy standards that already operate in the 2.4 and 5GHz ranges. What the spec page is referencing that the iPad can do two simultaneous streams using both the 2.4GHz radio and the 5GHz radios.
From Network World:
2×2 MIMO, for example, indicates two antennas at the transmit end and 2 antennas at the receive end, the minimum required by the draft 802.11n standard.
