Apple testing Wi-Fi patch for MacBook Air 802.11ac issues Apple has begun testing a patch/update for their new mid-2013 MacBook Air and its 802.11ac Wi-Fi issues.
Although the issues have not been widespread, there have been complaints about bugs and connectivity issues relating to the Wi-Fi which has the future-proofed 802.11ac standard.

Apple has been providing select customers the option to test the pre-release version of the "MacBook Air WiFi Update 1.0," asking them to give feedback on bugs or any issues with the installation process.

The new Airs, both the 11-inch and the 13-inch varieties, will eventually receive the update.

So far, Apple has not sent the pre-release software, perhaps waiting until more users sign up to test it.

This is not the first time Apple has quickly had to patch their new devices for a Wi-Fi issue. Last year's MacBook Pro with Retina had glitches with connecting 802.11n networks in the 5GHz band.
