Apple May be First Tech Company to Implement 802.11ac Gigabit Wifi

There’s a new wireless standard on the horizon called 802.11ac, which will allow wireless clients the ability to achieve gigabit speeds over the air. Apple has typically been known to adopt new wifi standards before other tech companies, so the news that they plan to implement the new 802.11ac standard in their 2012 line of devices probably isn’t too far from the truth. The new standard will offer greater speeds, larger coverage areas, and more power efficient chips once it goes live. I’ve been wondering when the next 802.11 wireless standard was going to be released, so I guess 2012 is the year. Looks like it may soon be time to replace those wireless routers! You’ve been thinking that you can live with 802.11n for now…
