( Your Tips, Upgrade Reports, Questions to news at

Apple/Mac/iOS related News/Op-Ed/Rumors/Tips/PR:

There's a previous page here with Info on other Mac/OS X compatible 802.11ac Adapters/cards - PCIe, USB, Mini-PCIe. (Some natively supported but OS X driver links included for adapters that require them.)

New/Updated Apple Support/How-To Articles:

Here's our page of Tips, Troubleshooting & How-To Guides for Mac/OS X/iOS Users.

Anyone else notice the Apple Support/Downloads page no longer defaults to listing latest update first regardless of product. (Is "Featured" order arbitrary, by recent popularity or number of D/Ls?)
Even selecting by product doesn't always show latest update first. (Most recent updates were 2 MacBook Air firmware updates last week, but Notebooks product page shows older updates first.) Maybe just a glitch (or my browser setup) but disappointing to see changes (forums, support/docs, etc) that require more effort to get to information than before. (No Apple feedback topic for this.)
