Trending Wi-Fi & Bluetooth Products in 2022: August Edition

Wireless technologies like WiFi and Bluetooth are used to transmit and receive data wirelessly via radio signals. Bluetooth is used for short-range, low data-rate wireless communication while Wi-Fi is used for longer range, higher data rate applications. Both technologies have a number of versions that have been developed over the years. The latest version of Wi-Fi is now Wi-Fi 7 and that of Bluetooth is v5.3. In this article, everything RF has listed some WiFi & Bluetooth that were trending on the website in August 2022.
