I have a theory about why Apple won’t release another router


I miss Apple’s AirPort range. Back when I was taking my first forays into home networking, these wireless routers and extenders were a vital part of my setup.

Yet, as per usual, good things couldn’t last.

Back in 2018, Apple bowed out of the networking game entirely and discontinued its AirPort and Time Capsule line-up.

Besides me, one who hasn’t let this slide is Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman. In a piece published earlier this week, the renowned Apple analyst and leaker called for the company to reintroduce Wi-Fi routers as part of its product portfolio.

And, honestly? The argument for this relaunch is compelling.
