Apple killing AirPort wireless routers

Apple has confirmed it will stop making its AirPort wireless router range, 9to5Mac reported.

Remaining stock will be sold through retailers, after which the AirPort Express, AirPort Extreme, and models of AirPort Time Capsule will no longer be available.

According to the report, Apple has not dropped the price of the routers.

It continues to sell the AirPort Express for $99, AirPort Extreme for $199, 2TB AirPort Time Capsule for $299, and the 3TB AirPort Time Capsule for $399.

Apple’s policy on obsolete products states that you will be able to get parts from Apple service providers for five years after the product is no longer manufactured.

The company has also published a support page on its website offering tips on choosing a Wi-Fi router to use with Apple devices.

Apple recommends:

  • Support for IEEE 802.11ac.
  • Simultaneous dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz).
  • WPA2 Personal (AES) encryption.
  • MIMO or MU-MIMO.
