AirPort Extreme

Time Capsule

That’s not to say Apple’s offerings don’t have their appeal to Mac users. The Time Capsule, which doubles as a 2TB hard drive storage for the Mac’s Time Machine back-up program, is particularly useful. Nevertheless, it appears the AirPort’s time may be done. Gurman’s report on Apple ending AirPort development follows Apple’s decision to discontinue its Thunderbolt Display earlier in 2016. Apple appears to be refocusing its engineers on the products that will have a greater impact on Apple’s future. Instead of routers and displays, Apple is better off improving products like Apple TV, and working on Siri and Siri-based devices. That latter category is particularly important in an age when every tech company under the sun is focused on bringing intelligent personal assistants to devices for the home.
