The new MacBook Air from Apple boasts all day battery life, a 4th generation Intel CPU, a super-fast SSD, a bump in graphics performance and support for the latest 802.11ac Wi-Fi technology. Unfortunately, there have been a few issues with the latter.
New MacBook Air owners are experiencing Wi-Fi connection drops on a regular basis and the only fix seems to require you to reboot your laptop. This obviously sucks and it’s one of the reasons I prefer to wait a while before buying the latest and greatest.
Fortunately, there is good news out there as AppleInsider has reported that Apple is indeed sending out invitations for MacBook Air users to join the AppleSeed program which will allow them to download a early version of the “MacBook Air WiFi Update 1.0”. This update is most likely aimed at correcting the connection issues that early adopters have been dealing with over the last few weeks.
The 2013 MacBook Air in both sizes is currently the only laptop in Apple’s lineup that features the new 802.11ac standard.
