Apple testing Ultra-Fast Li-Fi Wireless Technology for Future iPhones

Jan 21, 2016
Apple to make future iPhones compatible with a cutting-edge technology that has the capability to transmit data at 100 times the speed of WiFi , suggests the code found within the iOS firmware. Apple may ship future iPhones with Li-Fi capabilities, a new technology that may end up replacing the widely-used Wi-Fi in the future technology. Beginning with iOS 9.1 update, the operating system's source code makes mention of " LiFiCapability " alongside declarations to other hardware and software capabilities, hinting that Apple may be experimenting with ways to integrate Li-Fi technology with future iPhones models. Li-Fi compatibility with Future iPhones Li-Fi compatibility was spotted in the code for iOS 9.1 by a Twitter user, who goes by name Chase Fromm, and was independently confirmed by Apple Insider. However, there is no such indication that Apple is actually working with Li-Fi. But, as pointed out by Apple Insider, Apple filed a patent applic

Li-Fi is 100 times Faster than Wi-Fi Technology: Real-World Tests Prove

Nov 26, 2015
Yes, it's time to shift from Wi-Fi to Li-Fi — an alternative technology that is 100 times faster than the average speeds of Wi-Fi . Scientists have just field-tested the new wireless technology called Li-Fi for the first time and achieved marvelous wireless speeds that are 100 times faster than current WiFi speeds. What is Li-Fi Technology? Li-Fi is a new wireless technology that transmits high-speed data using light (i.e. Visible Light Communication or VLC) rather than radio bands. In short, Li-Fi is a Super-Fast alternative to Wi-Fi. Earlier this year, scientists achieved mind-blowing speeds of 224 gigabits per second (Gbps) in the lab using Li-Fi. It's believed that this technology has the potential to change everything about the way we use the Internet today. And Yes, it will. Test Results: Li-Fi is 100 times Faster than Wi-Fi An Estonian startup company called Velmenni took the technology out of the laboratories and into the real-
