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.
Following a brief period during which both the AirPort Extreme wireless base station and the AirPort Time Capsule wireless appliance were unavailable for purchase from Apple’s retail stores in the United States, the devices are now back in stock at most retail locations and are once again available for Personal Pickup, MacRumors discovered.
Both the AirPort Extreme wireless base station and the AirPort Time Capsule appliance, which is a combination of a base station and a 2TB/3TB wireless hard drive with built-in Time Machine support, have been pulled from Apple’s retail stores in the United States, an Apple support representative has confirmed to MacRumors.
Over the last several months, we’ve revisited Time Machine, the backup utility present in OS X. We’ve showed you everything from performing an initial Time Machine setup, to encrypting Time Machine backups, to restoring specific files from those backups.
Time Machine is a great tool that every OS X user should become intimately familiar with, and in this roundup, we’ll revisit each of the topics covered over the last couple of months.
Time Machine is extremely easy to use, and its flexibility makes it a great solution for keeping your Mac backed up safely. But with external drives being as large as they are, you may wish to use some of the space on your Time Machine drive for basic file storage.
There are many ways to go about this, but one of the best ways is to simply create a separate partition on your external drive. By doing this, you have a dedicated partition for file storage, and a dedicated partition for your Time Machine backups.
Although it’s possible to store files on your Time Machine partition, in my opinion, it’s a better practice to keep them separated. In this fourth entry into our Time Machine tutorial series, I’ll show you how simple it is to create a second partition on your Time Machine external drive.
Time Machine is very useful, because not only does it allow you to back up all of your user data, but it also allows you to selectively view and restore portions of that data, even down to individual files.
In this tutorial, the forth in our series about Time Machine, I’m going to show you to how to view and restore an individual file using a Time Machine backup.
