Forever, AirPort: Apple discontinues its wireless router

Apple will discontinue its AirPort product line , which includes the AirPort Express (€ 97), AirPort Extreme (€ 199) and AirPort Time Capsule (€ 399) models.

The latest stocks of each of the AirPort wireless router models will continue to be available on the Apple website, in the Apple Stores and other authorized stores until they are sold out.

Apple did not update its AirPort products since 2012 (Express) and 2013 (Extreme and Time Capsule). At the end of 2016 it was known that the company of the bitten apple had stopped the development of its AirPort devices and reassigned its engineers to other projects.

Apple will start selling third-party routers

We all know that Apple is a company that bases its sales strategy on simplifying as much as possible the development of its products . In this way, they can focus all their efforts on "consumer products that generate most of their income".

After learning that Apple will discontinue its AirPort line, the company began selling third-party routers , such as the Linksys Velop Mesh system .

Some of the unique features that Apple offered on its AirPort wireless routers will not be available on these third-party routers, such as the AirPlay functionality for AirPort Express.

Apple will continue to provide technical service and parts for its AirPort equipment for the next five years . But it will not continue to develop its routers. As mentioned previously, Apple will sell its three AirPort products in the Apple Store and on its official website until all available supplies are exhausted.

On the other hand, and to end this issue, we have learned that Apple is also planning to share some items with very interesting information to assist customers who are thinking of changing their AirPort Express, Extreme or Time Capsule by another wireless router.
