Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) announced that Bluetooth 5 will be the new wireless standard and will replace Bluetooth 4.2. SIG has already officially adopted Bluetooth 5 as the latest version.

Bluetooth 5 is coming with lot many great features as it will support a longer range and provides a larger speed with a larger broadcast message capacity. The speed of Bluetooth 5 is two times more than that of Bluetooth 4.2. And it supports a four times larger range than Bluetooth 4.2. This makes the Bluetooth 5 work faster compared to the previous one.

Bluetooth is revolutionizing how people experience the Internet of Things (IoT). Bluetooth 5 continues to drive this revolution by delivering reliable IoT connections and mobilizing the adoption of beacons, which in turn will decrease connection barriers and enable a seamless IoT experience.- Mark Powell, Executive Director of the Bluetooth SIG.

Moreover, the company said that,

With the launch of Bluetooth 5, we continue to evolve to meet the needs of IoT developers and consumers while staying true to what Bluetooth is at its core: the global wireless standard for simple, secure, connectivity.

Bluetooth 5 will provide more robust and reliable connections, and its higher speed will allow being more responsive. Furthermore, Andrew Zignani, with ABI Research, said that Bluetooth 5 would create new opportunities in various verticals in the IoT market because of less complexity and cost with more flexibility.

Products supporting Bluetooth 5 will be available in the market after two to six months of release. We can look forward to this feature in the upcoming products of Apple, including the iPhone too.
