He covered:

  • Advantages of WiFi 6 and 6E.
  • Which Apple products support the different standards.
  • What UK Internet providers offer a WiFi 6E router, currently Vodaphone seems to be the only one.
  • Using a 3rd party router.
  • Checking your current WiFi standard (on newer macOS versions the Wifi icon may be located in Control Centre).

WiFi 6 is supported by iPhone 11 and later and Apple Silicon Macs. Apple have a support article about WiFi 6E including what products support it.
