This means that most, if not all, future Macs will be produced with the 802.11ac wireless standard supported. We'll probably see a refresh of the MacBook Air sooner rather than later and I imagine 802.11ac will be included at that time. This means Apple will likely be releasing 802.11ac compliant AirPort routers and iOS devices.
