Rumors about new Macs equipped with chips compatible with the Wi-Fi standard 802.11ac, which provides a much greater bandwidth for wireless networks affectionately called “Wi-Fi 5G” have been circulating for since January 2012 and won force earlier this year.
It seems that now it goes. As we can see in the image above, codes referring to the 802.11ac standard were found in the second beta version of OS X 10.8.4, released recently for developers. The truth is that Broadcom has been manufacturing chips compatible with the new standard since the beginning of last year, that is, the ball is even with Apple.
On a related note, the always polemic DigiTimes informed that Apple should update its line of MacBooks at the end of the second quarter, which beats the period of WWDC 2013, an event that traditionally happens in June. Now wait and see.
