Apple Air Port Wireless Routers Discontinued Available Until Stocks Last

Bidding adieu: Apple officially discontinues AirPort router line

In a statement to 9to5Mac, Apple said "We're discontinuing the Apple AirPort base station products".

Apple has announced that it is officially discontinuing the AirPort wireless router line-up, which includes the AirPort Extreme, the AirPort Express, and two variants of AirPort Time Capsule. The AirPort Extreme and AirPort Time Capsule debuted in 2013, while the AirPort Express was released in 2012. That means there are no discounts available either from the Apple channels though third-party resellers might bring down the price to let go of unsold stocks quickly.

The death of Apple's router business has been a long time coming, with Bloomberg reporting in November 2016 that the firm had disbanded the team responsible for the development of its routers. There is no update on whether Apple will re-enter the market at anytime but, for now, it seems there are no plans in the near future.

AirPort Express, for instance, now boasts support for AirPlay functionality built-in - and Apple's AirPort Time Capsules feature support for backing up data via Time Machine on OS X and macOS computers. The reason the company has come to this decision is that it wants to focus on other products that can generate the bulk of the revenue for the tech firm. That's why Apple is putting together a series of knowledge base documents to help guide customers looking for a new router. Basically, the routers let products like iPhones, Macs, and iPads connect to the internet wirelessly.

Apple says you should be on the lookout for MIMO or MU-MIMO, which ensures all your devices take advantage of your connection, even when several devices are connected at the same time.
