According to a report by a Japanese outlet called Mac Otakara, the iPhone 12 series phones will support ultra-short range wireless LAN standard 802.11ay.

We are expecting to see a total of four new high end iPhones from Apple later this year, there will be two iPhone 12 handsets, one with 5.4 inch display the other with a 6.1 inch display. This is already a major distinction between older 2.4GHz Wi-Fi used by the 802.11b/g/n standards and the new 5GHz 802.11ac Wi-Fi systems, and why most home routers and Wi-Fi devices still support both bands.

The iPhone 12 will include an ultra-quick version of Wi-Fi, if an unconfirmed report is correct.

Qualcomm's new chipsets; With its continuously working Wi-Fi detection capability, it enables devices to detect people, objects, movements and location. These chips can provide devices with network speeds up to 10+ Gbps and low latency.

The 802.11ay standard which is still in its developmental phase uses 60GHz spectrum for high bandwidth data transfers. WiGig relies on the 802.11ad connection standard, and Qualcomm's latest chip pushes WiGig to a new generation of wireless standards called 802.11ay.
