Time Capsule and AirPort models were updated this morning, adding some fun and much-needed features.
New features on both:
- Simultaneous Dual-Band WiFi: Time Capsule and AirPort Extreme now work on both 2.4GHz (the same frequency as cordless phones, by the way) and 5GHz bands at the same time.
- Guest Networking: Now Time Capsule and AirPort Extreme offer a WiFi network option expressly for visitors, meaning guests use a different password on a separate network (keeping those passwords safe!).
Wireless drive sharing and printing is still featured on both, as well as integration with iPhone and Apple TV. They have remained at the same price points.
Apple’s solution for automatic “no hassle” backups. There are still two storage options, 500GB and 1TB, and it includes the same easy wireless networking capability.
The wireless router that gives you more. It still offers fast, 802.11n WiFi access for Macs and PCs and other WiFi devices such as iPhone, iPod touch, and Apple TV.
- AirPort Extreme Base Station: $179.99
