Foreign media quoted anonymous sources as reports that Apple had dissolved the AirPort team responsible for the development of wireless routers within the company. Engineers in the team had been reorganized to more profitable departments.
There are three types of AirPort wireless routers currently sold by Apple: AirPort Express, AirPort Extreme, and AirPort Time Capsule. However, no new products have been updated since 2013.
The AirPort wireless router was introduced by Apple in 1999, when CEO Steve Jobs personally demonstrated the iBook Mac laptop's wireless connection. However, compared with Apple's iPhone, iPad, and even core business such as Mac, Apple's router business is far apart, both in terms of revenue and profitability.
Apple's dissolution of the R&D team of wireless routers means that Apple's routers have come to an end almost 18 years after their existence.
When Apple gave up its wireless router business, Appleâ€™s competitor Google increased its investment in wireless routers. Google launched its home-facing wireless router, Google Wi-Fi, in October this year.
