Apple’s latest MacBook Air and Mac mini models released on Wednesday are the first hardware from the company to support the Bluetooth 4.0 wireless standard for improved power consumption.
The Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) mode is aimed at low-power and low-latency applications. It carries a short range of up to 160 feet, but it still reaches farther than the competing radio frequency identification (RFID) wireless standard. The additions come just a month after Apple officially joined the Bluetooth Special Interest Group board of directors. At the time it was revealed that the company would aid in developing the low-power 4.0 specification.
