After launching new MacBook Airs and Airport devices with support for 802.11ac Wi-Fi at its WWDC keynote today, Apple has now updated its AirPort Utility iOS app and Airport Utility on Mac to support the faster wireless standard.

The AirPort Utility iOS app is now in version 1.3 and comes with the ability to “configure and manage the new AirPort Extreme and AirPort Time Capsule with 802.11ac Wi-Fi.”

The Utility on the Mac received an update to version 6.3, also bringing support for the new AirPort Time Capsule and AirPort Extreme with 802.11ac Wi-Fi.

Apple says the new standard provides “wireless performance that is up to three times faster when connected to an 802.11ac base station.”
