Even though the WiFi has become the number one connection for any gadget in the modern world, Bluetooth has obstinately held its top position. Millennials need this smart connection to join the power of two devices at once. Whether it is the fitness tracker and smartphone or the wireless keyboard and PC, the new Bluetooth makes our lives easier.
The recent insane tech development has not avoided Bluetooth at all. On the contrary, the new Bluetooth 5 has been officially launched on December 7. Its performance has already scored great reviews, and it will shortly become a key element for the Internet of Things era. The new version delights users with a longer and more powerful range which is accompanied by a faster speed and larger capacity for broadcast message.
Smartphone owners will meet a higher level of speed. The new Bluetooth 5 seems to be an answer to the need of modern society for a reliable and fast connection to technology. It will bring us twice the speed we were used to with Bluetooth 4.2. Instead of 1 Mbps, the speed limit will increase to 2 Mbps. As far as the new specs for connectivity are concerned, devices will be able to detect others that are four times further than the previous version could.
Any smart home technologies, smartphones, and wearables will soon be updated with the latest tech by manufacturers. Once the process is ready, the world will see a reliable IoT experience, and it will not struggle with connectivity issues anymore. The modern home will receive an extended coverage for all its area. Furthermore, outdoor or commercial applications will go from impossible to reality.
Even though there are lots of improvements for the new Bluetooth, there will be little repercussions for hosting devices. Version 5 adopted a mindful character regarding batteries, and it will come in a low-energy format. Furthermore, it won’t allow for another device to jam its connections anymore. The new Bluetooth will be able to avoid interference coming from other wireless devices.
Researchers foresee that the IoT industry which comprises smart appliances will reach a staggering number of 48 billion shipments by 2021. Of these, more than a third will have incorporated a Bluetooth connection. This fruitful future will persuade Bluetooth Special Interest Group to improve their technology to a whole new level of efficiency.
All in all, the world will move twice faster than before thanks to the new Bluetooth version. Even though the update is already here, it will take another two to six months to reach all devices. Until then, how are you planning to use Bluetooth 5?
