Intel drivers from Apple could possibly get added to macOS in the next 6 months so I'd advise using Broadcom until then. There is already an Intel Wifi 6 card in the new iPad Pro. Coming to the Mac line soon ? Very possible.
Where did you got the info about Intel Wifi 6 in the new iPad Pro?

I looked at the kernelcache of iPadOS 13.4 for ipad8,11.

There are these kext:

com.apple.driver.BCMWLANFirmware4378_Hashstore
com.apple.driver.AppleBCMWLANCore
com.apple.driver.AppleBCMWLANBusInterfacePCIe

I can not find any info about bcm4378 online. It looks like custom made for Apple.

It works on Intel ac 3165 slowish and sometimes it reboots the laptop. Chuwi Aerobook.

Only tested on 7265AC, should also work on other intel cards but not tested yet. This driver currently ONLY works in 10.15.

First edit the Info.plist and add the ssid and password

View attachment 450677

Then load the kext using terminal (Dont install directly into L/E):


Code:
sudo mv ./*.kext /tmp
sudo chown -R root:wheel /tmp/*.kext
sudo kextload /tmp/*.kext


The driver is in early development stage and there are still bugs such as high packet loss.

Intel AC 9260 card is running but device crashes after a kext load command.

I entered the device id by editing info.plist with xcode, but it continues to crash.

I am excitedly waiting for you to offer the appropriate driver.

Hi guys. I just tried that kext with my Intel AC 3165 in 10.15.3 and I always get this kernel panic right after the kext loads. Loading it manually with sudo kextload also causes the same KP. Any ideas?

I found one its a new Broadcom card with WiFi AX and bluetooth 5.0.
