Apple Officially Discontinues AirPort Router Line

Apple Said to Halt Development of Routers

Being the owner of an Apple AirPort Extreme, I am deeply saddened to hear that the company has discontinued its range of routers and is not going to be introducing a refresh down the road. Currently Apple sells the AirPort Express for $99 (roughly Rs. 6,600), AirPort Extreme for $199 (roughly Rs. 13,200), the cheaper 2TB AirPort Time Capsule variant for $299 (roughly Rs. 19,900), and the 3TB AirPort Time Capsule for $399 (roughly Rs. 26,600). Since then, the company's AirPort offerings have been experiencing a decline with the rising popularity of mesh Wi-Fi systems like Eero, Google Wifi, and the Linksys Velop. The company has announced that it is exiting the wireless router business, and is looking to sell off the remainder of its inventory.

Apple's "AirPort base stations" provided benefits unavailable through third-party options like built-in "Time Machine backup support" in the "Time Capsule" and "AirPlay" functionality for the "AirPort Express", the report added. "They will be available through Apple.com, Apple's retail stores and Apple Authorized Resellers while supplies last", Engadget reported on Thursday, quoting an Apple spokesperson. The tech giant will post a series of knowledge base documents over the next few weeks to help guide customers wondering what to buy.

"We're discontinuing the Apple "AirPort base station" products". The move comes after Apple reportedly dissolved the AirPort division, and shifted the team to work on AppleTV, iPad and iPhone. Netgear Inc. and D-Link Corp. also make wireless routers. We hope Apple will come up with something new really big in next coming years.
