Can someone explain how MIMO works?
I picked up my iPad Air on Friday, and I love it, but but I don't really notice a difference with downloading apps, magazines, etc. verses my version 4 iPad. Should it be faster? Is there something I need to do to turn it on? Has anyone else noticed an increase in download speeds? Thanks for any help with this.

Re: Can someone explain how MIMO works?
With my Airport Extreme 5th generation single antenna i was getting in the 30 to 70 mbps downloads.
Picked up the 6th generation Airport Extreme tower with six antenna. Since the IPad Air has two antenna, could now get true MIMO beaming. And both have ac wifi.
Signal strength is greater everywhere around the house. Highest speeds now in the 90 mbps. However so many other factors play into download speed you can not consistently get that speed.
Still the MIMO Feature does work as low signal spots are now gone anywhere on my property.
