James Vincent, writing for The Verge under the headline “Bluetooth Will Get Much More Powerful Next Year”:
The ever-growing number of connected gadgets on the market is
putting a strain on our Bluetooth connections. To keep up with the
increased burden, the Bluetooth standard is getting an upgrade,
with longer range, faster speeds, and mesh networking all in the
works for 2016. The incorporation of these new features is being
overseen by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), an
industry body that counts companies such as Apple, Intel,
Microsoft, and Lenovo among its backers.
“Next year it will work great” should be the motto of Bluetooth.
