Apple Might Be Discontinuing Its Airport Line Of Products

According to Bloomberg, Apple is abandoning the AirPort Express, AirPort Extreme, and AirPort Time Capsule. The company has disbanded its division that develops wireless routers, in a move to try to sharpen the company's focus on consumer products that generate the bulk of its revenue. The article goes on to say Apple started shutting down the wireless router team over the past year, dispersing engineers to other product development groups, including the one handling the Apple TV. This shouldn’t really be a surprise to anyone as Apple hasn’t refreshed its routers since 2013. They also lags behind to match new standards from the wireless industry.
