Ever since I got my R6 in September, I noticed that the picture and video transfer over Wifi using Canon Connect is painfully slow! I have religeously kept up to date with firmware updates in the hope of it getting better, but so far no joy!
Pictures take a few seconds, but OK. However, even short videos of a few seconds in length take several minutes to transfer, displaying a "compressing and saving" message on my iPhone 10. It was faster when using my previous Canon 90D on the same phone.
Am I missing a trick somewhere?

Yes, it is very slow.
A common misconception, which I also once had, is that built-in Wi-Fi means the camera is fully networkable when it is not. The apps sort of use Wi-Fi technology as means to extend the wireless range of Bluetooth, which is slow.
The built-in Wi-Fi is better suited for remote shooting scenarios, where you download one still image every time you fire the shutter. Use a USB cable or a card reader to transfer massive video files.
