There’s a secret radio inside Apple’s new Macs and iPads – here’s what it does

We knew that Apple’s latest Macs and iPads were already packed to the gills with the latest chips and components, but it seems there’s also a bonus one that Apple didn’t tell us about – a radio that supports the Thread networking standard.

The Verge did some digging in latest reports from the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and found indirect evidence of Thread radios in most of Apple’s new Mac and iPad models. These include the iPad Air 6, iPad Pro 13-inch (2024), iPad Pro 11-inch (2024), MacBook Air 15-inch (M3), MacBook Pro 14-inch (M3 Max and M3 Pro), and the iMac (M3).
