Macbook Air 2013 Review, Rumors, Specs: MacBook Air Wi-Fi Connectivity Issues Attributed To The Device
The new Macbook Air is reportedly suffering from unfixable WiFi connectivity issues, as owners are taking to Apple Support Forums for answers.
Thousands of Apple's MacBook Air users have posted their issues to online Forums, revealing that the Wi-Fi connectivity issues occur over different routers and connections, meaning that the device itself is the problem.
According to Geeky Gadgets, MacBook Air users all sight the same process: after the MacBook Air successfully connects to a Wi-Fi network, the connection will suddenly stop working. Air owners then re-boot their devices to establish the connection. Users have even claimed that the connectivity issue worsens if the computer is placed on a desk.
A 13-inch Macbook Air is priced at $1,449 on Apple's website. The new Air holds 256 GB of flash storage, and is supported by a 13.3-inch LED-backlit widescreen. Other features of the ultra-light device include a multi-touch trackpad, Bluetooth 4.0 wireless connectivity, and a 720p FaceTime HD camera.
Review of Apple's new MacBook Air are not all bad, however. The new Macbook Air features a desired trait from Apple users: longer battery life. According to the Telegraph, the model claims 12 hours of sustainable battery life without charge.
"These were already excellent ultraportable notebooks; now they're excellent ultraportable notebooks that push battery life to new, productivity-changing heights," wrote Harry McCracken in a MacBook Air review for TIME.
Apple has yet to respond to the Air's Wi-Fi connectivity problems.
