Intel has released new driver updates for their Bluetooth and WLAN devices. The drivers being rolled out update both the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth drivers to version 22.140.0. To be exact, the Bluetooth driver has been updated to version 22.140.0.4, and the Wi-Fi driver has been updated to version 220.140.0.3.

The highlight of this release is that the Bluetooth 5.3 technology is now supported with this driver. So if you have the hardware, it is time to install the latest compliant drivers and speed up your transfers. However, you must also be running the supported operating system to use Bluetooth 5.3.

That said, the Intel Wi-Fi driver 22.140.0 does not include updates for the following device families:

  • Intel Wireless 7265 Family (Rev.C)
  • Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3160
  • Intel Wireless 7260

Moreover, Intel reminds their users that there will be no newer WLAN drivers for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 operating systems, starting with version 12.50.1.
