As per Apple Online Store, all AirPort Extreme units are now sold out. In some countries like Germany, no AirPort models are available just a few weeks after the iPhone producer announced it had discontinued all AirPort wireless appliances.
With this tiny accessory, you can use your AirPods or any wireless headphones anywhere that a wire was previously required. Now you can listen to in-flight TV or hear the gym cardio machine’s TV audio with your AirPods, PowerBeats or any other wireless headphone.
If you have multiple Apple devices capable of responding to the Hey Siri hot phrase, and it just so happens that your HomePod is responding to your commands instead of your watch or phone—you might want to temporarily disable Hey Siri on your HomePod.
Following reports from some early adopters who complained that their HomePod was leaving visible ring marks on treated wood furniture and other wooden surfaces, Apple is reportedly working to rectify the situation by developing a new material.
A new Bloomberg report, short on facts, claims HomePod sales are low based on limited understanding of supply channel checks and unreliable data from Slice Intelligence which 3 years ago said Apple Watch sales were “collapsing”.
This is a pretty awesome development. If AirPort Express indeed picks up properly implemented support for AirPlay 2 via a firmware update, you will be able to use AirPlay 2 with almost any speakers you have sitting around. Pro tip: AirPort Expresses are dirt cheap on eBay at the moment.
