The myth behind iPhone's highspeed network

Wondering how could Apple boost its next iphone, 20 times faster ?

Here is how they did ! Its called as multipath TCP

"Multipath" - using more than one wireless network. Its an innovative wireless technology which uses both our 3G (mobile network) and WiFi network to connect to the internet ! 

For simplicity, all odd packets get sent over WiFi and all even packets over mobile network. Cool ! But apple is using this technology only for Siri to decrease its latency.

But its a good start towards a great technology ! Inspiring Apple. Its one of the reasons why apple fans call apple as the innovative company :-)
