New MacBook Pros come with Bluetooth 5.0
The new MacBook Pros bring not only more power and an improved keyboard, but also a small wireless upgrade.
The 2018 models now feature Bluetooth 5.0. This means that the new short-range radio technology has also found its way into the Macs. Previously, Apple had already introduced iPhone 8, X and the HomePod with Bluetooth 5.0.
The advantage of the new standard is essentially the doubling of the data rate in low-energy mode from 1 to 2 Mbit/s or alternatively in an increase in range at 1 Mbit/s from 50 to 200 meters outdoors or from 10 to 40 meters indoors.
