For the sake of accuracy I downloaded the last downloadable Bootcamp package on Apple's site; 5.1.1769 and as I said, the .inf file says the driver version inside the install is: Broadcom Version 188.8.131.52 dated 12/13/2013 which is a Win 8 driver.I use the last downloadable Bootcamp drivers with Windows 10 and it works for both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. I never looked for or tried any updated versions.
Tonight I went to Github and downloaded "Brigadier" and determined how to use it, as it is a Terminal script. There are two parts to it, and you must first extract you machine signature into it, so it will download the latest package for that signature. I am working off of my Z97 machine which has Sierra on in and it is using the 14,2 Imac signature. You then start the 2nd part in Terminal, it will download the latest Win 10 Bootcamp 6.X package from an Apple ESD directy from Apple's server, in this case, it was Bootcamp 031-55710 which is a Bootcamp 6X package. In Terminal, it shows the signature list compatibilities for this newer Win 10 Package, which was, as follows: (copied directly from the Terminal Window during the ESD download, unpacking and conversion to dmg,: [ done when booted to 10.12.6 ]
Distribution 031-55710 supports the following models: MacBook8,1, MacBookAir5,1, MacBookAir5,2, MacBookAir6,1, MacBookAir6,2, MacBookAir7,1, MacBookAir7,2, MacBookPro9,1, MacBookPro9,2, MacBookPro11,1, MacBookPro11,2, MacBookPro11,3, MacBookPro11,4, MacBookPro11,5, MacBookPro12,1, MacPro6,1, Macmini6,1, Macmini6,2, Macmini7,1, iMac13,1, iMac13,2, iMac13,3, iMac14,1, iMac14,2, iMac14,3, iMac14,4, iMac15,1.
The lastest IMacs are 15,x so this is the newest, or close to it.
The driver in this Brigadier downloaded package is version, I extracted manually using 7zip is:
CatalogFile = BCM43XX.CAT
184.108.40.206 is newer than 220.127.116.11 dated 12/13/2013 which is what most users are being steared to. Further, the the Fevi Win 10 download on their site has the same version number 18.104.22.168.
