Apple’s M2 chip version of the iPad Pro 2022 released in October this year is the first Apple device to support Wi-Fi 6E, which uses the 6GHz band for faster and more reliable Wi-Fi connect. In a new support document, Apple explains how the feature works.
Apple says that to create a Wi-Fi 6E network, users need to use a Wi-Fi 6E router with either its 2.4GHz or 5GHz band enabled. For the best Wi-Fi performance, Apple recommends using a single network name on the router’s 2.4GHz, 5GHz, and 6GHz bands. Otherwise, the iPad Pro will identify the network as having “limited compatibility,” and Apple warns that “the overall experience of some activities over the network may not be as expected.”

If users encounter any problems using the Wi-Fi 6E network, Apple said that the Wi-Fi 6E mode of the network can be turned off, and the iPad Pro will no longer use the 6GHz band of the network. To turn off Wi-Fi 6E mode, you can open the Settings app, tap Wi-Fi, tap the name of the network you are connected to, tap Wi-Fi 6E mode and turn it off. However, Apple says this setting only appears on Wi-Fi 6E networks where all bands use a single network name.
According to Apple, the new iPad Pro equipped with the M2 chip combines portability, versatility, and unimaginable performance. The new iPad Pro features a new Apple Pencil hover experience and blazing-fast wireless connectivity, a best-in-class mobile display, a pro-grade camera, Face ID, a Thunderbolt port, and a four-speaker audio system.
