Bluetooth has become a critical part of the device intercommunication structure that blankets society. Once a feature that simply showcased new technology, Bluetooth has become a standard for today’s devices. It is safe to assume that launching a device without Bluetooth capability today would result in massive profit cuts.

Bluetooth developers have now announced the launch of Bluetooth 5, the next big update for the service. The importance attributed to this major update is also reflected in the kind of changes we get. Bluetooth 5 will come with improved speed, coverage and data yielding capacity.

While Bluetooth 5 is as fresh as it can be at the moment, so it shouldn’t take too long before we start seeing the first retail products boasting the new and improved wireless standard. From laptop computers to simple accessory adapters, Bluetooth 5 will eventually be integrated into all related technology.

Faster

By providing a Bluetooth experience that is twice as fast, developers ensure that device will see a rise in performance when transferring information. It also makes Bluetooth more reliable and enterprise-ready.

Bigger

Bluetooth 5 will offer up to 4 times the previous version’s coverage. By providing more distance support between devices, Bluetooth can dramatically ease transfer management and productivity.

Stronger

Last but certainly not least, the new iteration will feature an up to 8 times bigger message size transfer capacity. This will help Bluetooth become more relevant in high-end data transferring situations and allow it to offer support for more complex data exchanges.

Bluetooth executive director Mark Powell went on to say that the company is looking to maintain its status as world leader when it comes to wireless connectivity. On top of the guarantee of security, Bluetooth is counting on the massive improvements from Bluetooth 5 to further bolster its reputation.
