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.
If you’re in the market for a Wi-Fi router to use with your Mac, iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, HomePod or other Apple devices, look for these essential Apple-recommended features for the most compatibility, reliability and performance.
The longstanding rumors of Apple exiting the Wi-Fi router market were true after all as the Cupertino technology giant today confirmed that it is officially discontinuing its AirPort and Time Capsule base stations.
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.
The extended AppleCare+ warranty for HomePod will add two incidents of accidental damage from handling, each subject to a $39 service fee. It won’t cover cosmetic damage that does not affect the speaker’s functionality.
Call it awkward, or call it ironic, but a recent J.D. Power wireless router satisfaction report put Apple at the top, with a score of 876, followed by ASUS (860), D-Link (856) and TP-Link (854). This report obviously comes at an interesting time as the company was rumored this month to be disbanding its router unit and stop developing AirPort wireless routers.
