“We’re discontinuing the Apple AirPort base station products. They will be available through Apple.com, Apple’s retail stores and Apple Authorized Resellers while supplies last.”

That’s the statement Apple gave me but, as you might expect, there’s *a lot* more to this story.

    I tried the Orbi & all it does is DROP, I sent it back. How did the Linsky V work out for you? I’m considering just grabbing a second extreme and connecting them via Ethernet?? Any advice?

    Ohh I liked the airport. I still have one which I use a lot to backup my mac

  • comment-avatar

    Since Apple buy the intel modem departments, will Apple bring this back ?

    I don't want to have to "Grow Up" as the presenter says: The reason why Apple has been successful is precisely because we don't have to worry about the technology inside the box. Start it, and it runs…for decades. The technology is supposed to work for us, we're not supposed to work for the technology. So, as the song goes…"I don't want to grow up, I'm an Apple Kid."

    What a joke video 👎🏻🤪 Apple should stay in wifi business.

  • comment-avatar

    I wish they launch a new one

  • comment-avatar

    What a bozo what a waste of yapping

    After Apple pulled their product i just ran Cat5 cable hard lines all over my house. Ill just use my Airport for our phones and everything else wired.

    Could anyone please tell me what hub Rene Ritchie is using for example at 5:13 ? Thanks

  • comment-avatar

    I still use the apple extremes. Just bought a new one a couple of months ago at a pretty good price from a NYC company. They are getting scarcer and scarcer now though. Might try for one more if the price is right before they are extinct.

    I am searching for a Time Machine backup system is a Time Capsule still worth it or?

  • comment-avatar

    Why u never blink your eyes?? 👁

    My Extreme is about 10 years old. She's been good to me so far, but when any firmware or security updates stop being supported, I'm out! Very informative.

    One of the many reasons why I wanted an apple environment was the wireless capabilities of those products. First came the problem of available parts for my Mac Pro. Now they've thrown us under the bus with their discontinued network equipment. I don't know what is happening to apple but I have to tell You I'm seriously disgusted and even considering to abandon Apple entirely. Their latest policy doesn't make any sense to me and I can see it's going to be even worse…..

    I disagree apple needs to keep the line going way better

  • comment-avatar

    You didn't "speak with" Apple – that was the STANDARD statement they released to EVERYONE. Sheesh. Mislead much?

  • comment-avatar

    really sucks apple is pulling yet another thing! i also preferred that first iteration of time machine where it showed that cool galaxy and you backed your shit up. 🙁

  • comment-avatar

    He’s to much of a critic. 🙄

  • comment-avatar

    sounded like you are making excuses for Apple.

  • comment-avatar

    you are whining like you lost a baby
    WTF is going on here

  • comment-avatar

    ‘Rowter’? 😁 How would you pronounce ‘Route 66’?

  • comment-avatar

    I'm a professional installer and I'm so happy that apple is killing the airport, because to today's standards, it's trash. And also, sad that they're moving on to another trash that is velop. Eeros then Google mesh are the way to go now a days. Or maybe Asus's crazy mesh if you're a hardcore online gamer.

    And i hoped that Apple would make a nice revival for wired connection, provided through the wall outlet and the power supply with your apple product!

  • comment-avatar

    Damn I was just thinking about getting one of these whatever

  • comment-avatar

    YES I'M UPSET!

  • comment-avatar

    AirPort and TimeMachine could be central to any home-based system. The reliability and security of both these Apple system components made them more desirable than those of the competition. Why is Apple acting so retrogressively?

  • comment-avatar

    I've finally retired my Airport extreme (2013 model.) While the unit still works without issues, it was more from a security prospective I've made the choice. I replaced it with a NetGear NightHawk R7000. So far it's been a great replacement for a 1 bedroom apartment. It also feels quicker then the Airport when loading content and streaming. Overall performance seems to have gotten a nice boost. Also seems to be a rock solid router.

    I have been using Airport Routers ever since I bought my 1sr MAC Book Pro when OS X came out. I’m trying to stream movies one room away from my AirPort Extreme and they buffer all the time. I just bought a WiFi booster and that helped a ton but it still buffers every 15-20 minutes instead of every 5 minutes. I need a USB port and at least 3 ethernet ports What do I buy? Please help

  • comment-avatar

    why, it is good enough, at least it works

  • comment-avatar

    I have several Airport Extremes latest models, 1 2nd gen and 1 4th gen. They have extended my wifi network like a dream. Before I was having issues with my wifi dropping or being spotty through the house. I am disappointed that Apple has quit making this reliable product!I had 6 adults, 2 teenagers using wifi over the holidays… no issues!

  • comment-avatar

    Sucks waste of money it's just a expensive apple product just for a router you still need a modem mind as well just buy a good modem router like linkys 3.1 gigabit or the 3.1 surfboard for the same price

  • comment-avatar

    We started using wireless networking at home in 1999, thanks to Apple. I too am disappointed that they dropped out. The Apple Airport Express was an amazing product. We use Time Machine at home and I love how seamless it is.
    I was hoping Apple would make a true iTunes Server out of their wireless product line.

  • comment-avatar

    New to Apple… but when I picked up one of the Time Capsules, I found that the really nice Back to My Mac is now not available. When they blatantly tell you to use iCloud Drive instead, its obvious that the reason for discontinuation was to grab cash every month for larger storage plans.

  • comment-avatar

    I upgraded to a orbi

  • comment-avatar

    Can’t believe this, someone who clearly feels let down by an Apple decision yet makes excuses for them making it.

  • comment-avatar

    Apple software is so much better that anyone else, they make networking easy and it works. The express audio plug is be best.

  • comment-avatar

    Apple making the wrong choice by dropping the systems. They also made the wrong choice with apple macbook pro symbol light not on anymore too.

    Thanks for this information. I use Time Capsule and I'd like it stays on the market. However Time Capsule is not perfect for streaming or back up. It's too much slow.
