The 13-inch Apple MacBook Air, initially released with Bluetooth 5.0 support, has seen a revision in its specifications. The details on Apple's official website reveal the laptop now touts the enhanced Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity, promising increased speed and dependability.
This modification surfaced shortly after Apple introduced its 15-inch MacBook Air at the WWDC event last month, an iteration already featuring the advanced Bluetooth 5.3 connectivity. The adoption of this recent standard paves the way for more dependable connections with Bluetooth accessories and augments power efficiency, which can potentially extend battery life.
Good news for MacBook Air 13-inch users with the M2 processor!
While Bluetooth 5.0, launched in 2016, has been deemed somewhat obsolete, Bluetooth 5.3, introduced in 2021, has found its way into many Apple devices. The list includes the iPhone 14 series, Apple Watch Ultra, the second-generation AirPods Pro, and the latest models of the iPad Pro.
Accompanying the upgraded connectivity in the 13-inch MacBook Air is a 70W USB-C power adapter, mirroring that of the 15-inch variant. In another noteworthy development, Apple recently extended its self-repair program to include M2-powered MacBooks and the iPhone 14 series.
