AirPort Utility, Apple’s official app for managing its AirPort wireless appliances, has received an update fixing bugs that caused many issues for iOS 13 customers, including unexpected quits.

Apple yesterday released a new 7.8 software for AirPort Express, bringing AirPlay 2 compatibility and support for the Home app to its 802.11n wireless base station.
