Apple Announces AirPort Base Station Products Have Been Discontinued

Apple has announced it is ending production of its AirPort Base Station lineup, in a statement to 9to5Mac:

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

The writing was on the wall when back in late 2016, Bloomberg reported Apple had disbanded its division that developed their wireless routers. Despite Apple’s AirPort line in limbo, the company still released firmware to patch the KRACK vulnerability in WPA2 last winter.

Are you sad we won’t be seeing more AirPort base station products?
