Before the 802.11n draft was ratified, Apple had quietly been introducing the "draft n" hardware for a few years, enabling the functionality later through a driver update ([http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/12/01/21/apple_working_to_adopt_80211ac_5g_gigabit_wifi_this_year_.html|source]). Let's hope they have had the foresight to do the same this time around. Hopefully the teardown will reveal wi-fi hardware choices.

Judging by the pic of the new MBP internals on Apple's site, it does look like the wireless components are on a removable daughter-board, so there may well be the possibility of an upgrade (3rd party or otherwise) in future.
