Amplifi Alien Wifi 5 is faster than Wifi 6

I just recently received my Amplifi Alien, and I'm overall pleased with this router. Although, I did buy this router for it's Wifi 6 support since I have an iPhone 11 Pro Max which supports Wifi 6, and I have symmetrical gigabit fiber. I've ran speed tests on both the 802.11AC and 802.11AX bands, and I consistently get faster speeds on AC vs the newer AX. I've tried separating the SSID's as well as running it with one SSID and I get the same results. I can't get more than 500/500 on my iPhone 11 Pro Max on Wifi 6. Whereas, I'm getting closer to 600/600 on Wifi 5. Does anybody have any insight as to why my Wifi 5 would be faster than my Wifi 6 and what I can do to change it?

I wrote this thread months ago. Several months later, several updates later, the Amplifi support has been able to do nothing. They just "hope" it will magically get fixed somehow, yeah good luck with that..
