It has been years since Apple has refreshed its lineup of AirPort routers, and now Apple has made official what has been long suspected. An Apple spokesman told iMore that the company has decided to discontinue the AirPort base station products.
The news comes as no surprise as the last time Apple updated any model of the AirPort lineup was in 2013 when it refreshed the Extreme and Time Capsule. Apple said that it will continue selling its AirPort products until the stock has been depleted.
The company will, however, continue to support the current generation of AirPort products for the next five years with parts and service. iMore states that Apple will be posting support documents to help customers who will be transitioning from AirPort products in the near future.
In the meantime, Apple has released a new support document to help Apple device users choose a Wi-Fi router to use with their gear. The new document can be found here: support.apple.com/en-us/HT208753. If you’re in need of a new router now, be sure to check out the selection at MacSales.com
