Tim Hardwick, MacRumors:
Bluetooth 5, the next generation of Bluetooth standard, will be formally announced next week, offering double the range and quadruple the speed of the current low-energy wireless protocol. […]
It’s unclear whether Bluetooth 5 will come to existing devices as a firmware update or require new hardware, but the latter is more likely.
Think: The MacBook, Apple Watch and the rumoured iPhone sans-audiojack.
(There’s a recent trend around the Internet associated with the word ‘finally’.)
