Some Owners of New MacBook Airs Invited to Test Wi-Fi Update

Apple is sending out an invitation to some owners of new MacBook Air models, asking them to test a wi-fi software update. The update is believed to be in response to the wi-fi connectivity issues reported by many owners of the Air.


Apple’s invitation, via 9to5Mac:

You have been selected to join our AppleSeed program. If you accept, we will provide you with a pre-release version of the MacBookAir WiFi Update 1.0 to install and use …

As reported last week, Apple had been offering replacement machines for users reporting problems with wi-fi connectivity on the new machines, and has instructed stores to “capture” affected machines so the company can investigate the issue.

It is unknown how many MacBook Air owners are being offered the update, or if it will prove to be the cure for what ails the new machine’s 802.11ac wi-fi.

How about it readers, are any of you experiencing wi-fi connectivity issues with your new MacBook Air? What has been your experience with Apple’s reaction to any complaints you lodged? Have you been offered the update? Please let us know in the comments section below.
