Apple Has Oficially Abandon Its Airport Wireless Routers
Tech giant Apple has abandoned the development of its AirPort wireless router, since the company began to shut the team that has in charge of this division over the past year, in order to move the engineers to others products development teams. Although this device was considerably popular, it hasn't been updated since 2013.
AirPort Wireless Routers Can´t Compete Against Google´s
According to the Daily Mail, this moves could have done since Google are preparing to release its Google Wifi, which is a new wireless router that uses wireless technology called mesh networks, which spread Wi-Fi internet signals with more effectiveness with a price of $129, while the AirPort router had a ranging price from $99 to $399, depending on which of the three different models you buy. These routers are the AirPort Express, AirPort Extreme, and AirPort Time capsule.
This Google´s new product comes as an alternative to the existent bulkier wireless routers, which promises to increase its importance in this market, considering that the search giant already released a solo router last year, called OnHub. Despite the fact that the products were made by engineers at the "Access" unit, the devices were moved earlier this year under Google´s hardware chief Rick Osterloh.
It Could Create Problem With Apple´s Customers
Although this kind of action are never good for a company, the truth is that it wouldn't represent a significant setback for Apple, giving the fact that even when the AirPort router is part of the Cupertino company´s other products -which includes Apple Watch and TV that generated $11.1 billion this year, representing a 5 percent of its total sales-, it only contributes to a very small portion of its total revenue.
According to the International Business Times, the only problem about this situation is that some features of the AirPort like the music playback needs a Mac or an iPhone, which means that if Apple finally ditches the wireless routers, it could be an important reason for many people to start using other PCs and phones.
