Apple Quits Development of Wireless Routers


Apple has reportedly closed its division that develops wireless routers, according to Bloomberg's sources.

Apple began shutting down the wireless router team over the past year, dispersing engineers to other product development groups, including the one handling the Apple TV, a Bloomberg report claims.

Apple hasn?t refreshed its routers since 2013 following years of frequent updates to match new standards from the wireless industry.

An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment on the company?s plans.

Apple currently sells three wireless routers, the AirPort Express, AirPort Extreme, and AirPort Time capsule. The Time capsule doubles as a backup storage hard drive for Mac computers. obviously, these products make up a small slice of Apple's revenue and are part of Apple's "other products" category on its financial statements. The category, which includes the Apple Watch and Apple TV, generated $11.1 billion in fiscal 2016, or about 5 percent of total sales.

Apple has been traditionally charged more for its routers compared to other companies, and has focused more on integrating control of its devices into its computer operating system and industrial design.
