The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus aren't just bigger and better than ever, they've also got some subtle internal upgrades. I'm not talking processors; the new iPhones are the first Apple handsets to ship with 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and that gives them a hell of a speed boost, as you'll see in this handy video by iClarified.
According to The Next Web, the next generation of Apple's Mac lineup won't look much different—understandable, given the 2012 overhaul—but the guts will be shiny and new. Including, importantly, a new Broadcom chipset that boosts Mac Wi-Fi to the 802.11ac standard.
Though nothing you own currently uses the zippy fast 802.11ac spec, buying a 802.11ac router now future proofs your home with autobahn wireless speeds. Previously, the super fast routers that have came out have all been asspensive, these Belkin 802.11ac routers are the cheapest you'll find right now.
Buffalo just put a new Wi-Fi router on store shelves, and it's so fast you can't really use it with anything. But on paper it is so great and fast.
Most every piece of modern electronics has a wireless-connectivity option—TV's, alarm clocks, refrigerators, even thermostats. With all these devices competing for bandwidth—not to mention the demands of streaming media—network performance will suffer. Qualcomm Atheros' new gigabit-capable 802.11ac chips should give…
Wi-Fi is about to get pretty darn fast. Broadcom's first gigabit Wi-Fi cards are reportedly up to three times faster and six times more efficient than what's out there now.
The IEEE has begun voting on the 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard recently. And while things aren't even in the drafting phrase yet, this means that we should see the new standard—and the theoretical 1Gbps speeds it brings—by December 2012.
