As Wi-Fi becomes an easily available commodity in an era of connected devices, Apple has decided to officially discontinue its “AirPort” Wi-Fi routers, the media reported.

The Cupertino-based tech giant will continue to provide hardware and software support, but the devices like “AirPort Express”, “AirPort Extreme” and “AirPort Time Capsule” will only be available “while supplies last.”


“We’re discontinuing the Apple ‘AirPort base station’ products. They will be available through Apple.com, Apple’s retail stores and Apple Authorized Resellers while supplies last,” Engadget reported on Thursday, quoting an Apple spokesperson.

Apple introduced its AirPort line of products in 1999.

The company will provide service and parts for current generation “AirPort base stations” for the next five years.

Apple’s “AirPort base stations” provided benefits unavailable through third-party options like built-in “Time Machine backup support” in the “Time Capsule” and “AirPlay” functionality for the “AirPort Express,” the report added.

Apple had shuttered the “AirPort” unit when it began selling “third-party routers” in January and offered the “Linksys Velop Mesh Wi-Fi System.”

“However, no price drops on the products have officially been implemented by the iPhone-maker as of now,” said a report in MacRumors. IANS

Business owners hardly have time to look into all aspects of a business operation, and accounting is one aspect. While small business owners might invest some time handling accounting services, it is indeed a big waste for owners of major enterprises.

7th of December 1949, the Armed Force Flag Day

Since the 7th of December 1949, the Armed Forces Flag Day has been observed in India, annually. This one day is dedicated towards collection of funds from the citizens of India for the welfare of the ‘Indian Armed Forces personnel’. It has become a tradition to pay respect to the people who have served in the army, Navy and Airforce, on this day.

“The idea behind observing a Flag Day was to distribute small flags to the general population and in return collect donations.” The color-scheme of the flag is very similar to the ones used by fellow Commonwealth members like Cyprus, Kenya and Nigeria. The Flag Day signifies that it is the responsibility of the citizens of India to take care of the families and dependents of the armed forces personnel who fight for the country.
