Apple Reportedly Testing ‘MacBook Air WiFi Update 1.0’ To Solve 802.11ac Issues

Appleinsider’s Mikey Campbell reports that presumably in response to reports of 802.11ac Wi-Fi issues with the mid-2013 MacBook Air models released at WWDC, Apple late Friday began sending out invitations to select users, inviting participation in a new AppleSeed Program to test an upcoming Wi-Fi centric software update for the hot-selling laptop.

Campbell notes that while it isn’t explicitly stated in the AppleSeed invite, it is deduced that the update relates to recent Wi-Fi connectivity issues some customers have been experiencing with Apple’s implementation of the fairly new 802.11ac wireless standard – the recently-released 11- and 13-inch MacBook Airs being the first Macs to implement the fast wireless protocol that when supported by the new AirPort Extreme or AirPort Time Capsule, can reach theoretical speeds of up to 1300Mbps.
