In the first half of 2018, Apple has officially turned the sale of routers AirPort. The line includes three devices: the available AirPort Express, as well as the more expensive AirPort Extreme, and AirPort Time Capsule. It is noteworthy that the company has not ceased support of all routers – updates are released to this day. Recently Apple has released another update – the new version is at number 7.8.1. What’s new?
Traditionally, Apple does not reveal list of changes. A note indicates that a new update is aimed at improving the operation of routers, and contains the latest developments in the field of security. The update is now available for download on all supported devices: AirPort Express, AirPort Extreme, and AirPort Time Capsule.
How to install the update?
- You must ensure that you have access to the Internet. Important point — the hard drive in AirPort should not be used by any devices on the network share.
- You can upgrade both using Mac (with the built-in AirPort utility), and using the iPhone and iPad (by downloading the relevant app from the App Store).
- In the pop-up window with the device information, click on the “Update” button and confirm the installation.
- It remains only to wait for the completion of the installation process.
It is likely that this update will not be the last for the ruler of routers AirPort. Despite the fact that Apple completely turned the sales of devices and disbanded the unit responsible for the development of routers, the company has assured users that security updates will be released for several years.
