Apple is finally planning cellular connectivity in laptops

MacRumors reports that Apple’s next generation of laptops, which won’t be produced for several years, will feature cellular connectivity. But they won’t be like the chipsets found in its phones and high-end tablets: the company plans to integrate them into its own system-on-a-chip.

According to Gurman, Apple “will likely need two or three more years to integrate this chip into the cellular versions of the Apple Watch and iPad — and into the Mac once the part is integrated into the company’s system-on-a-chip. “

Apple has examined the possibility of developing MacBooks with cellular connectivity in the past. The company reportedly actually considered releasing a MacBook Air with 3G connectivity, but former CEO Steve Jobs said in 2008 that Apple decided against it because it would take up too much space in the case. An integrated SoC would solve this problem.

I want that! My iPhone’s shared hotspot is simply unreliable.
