Apple has now developed a fix for the Wi-Fi issues that were persistent in both 11 and 13 inch 2013 MacBook Air models. It has invited a select few users to join its AppleSeed Program to test this update before its release.
A little over a week ago we reported that many users of the latest MacBook Air models from Apple were complaining about Wi-Fi issues. They said that the machines would automatically disconnect from a Wi-Fi network both repeatedly and unexpectedly. This obviously causes users a lot of problems, up till now there has been no fix released for this issue, though it was confirmed earlier this week that Apple had taken notice of the issue and was working on a fix.
We know now that Apple has developed a fix, but it isn’t releasing it just yet. Selected users have been invited by the company to test out a pre-release version of the MacBook Air WiFi Update 1.0. The users will have access to a bug reporting portal through which they can alert Apple about any problems or issues that they discover. Once it has been ascertained that the update fixes the issue and has no bugs in itself, Apple will release it to the public.
It is not known precisely how many users have been selected by Apple to test out this update. At this point in time it would be difficult to pinpoint a release time-frame, Apple itself hasn’t hinted when it intends on releasing the fix.
