This update is for all 802.11n Air Port Express, 802.11n Air Port Extreme and Time Capsule models.
It fixes an issue with wireless performance and provides support for remote access to an Air Port disk or a Time Capsule hard drive with an i Cloud account.
To verify the tipster's claim, we contacted an Apple support representative who confirmed that Apple has pulled Air Port Extreme and Air Port Time Capsule stock from all U. Apple's web-based Personal Pickup tool has also been removed from the Air Port Extreme and Time Capsule product pages on its U. The base stations also remain on sale through authorized resellers such as Best Buy.
A retail source informed us that the Air Port Extreme and Air Port Time Capsule remain in stock at stores in the U. With WWDC 2016 around the corner, scarce availability of the Air Port Extreme and Time Capsule in the U. will naturally stir speculation about a possible refresh to its Wi-Fi base station lineup.
The tutorial below is only for configuring the dynamic DNS client in the Air Port devices to use Dyn.
The 7.7.8 update applies to 802.11ac base stations, while the 7.6.8 update is available for 802.11n base stations.There’s probably no harm in passing on these updates if you’re not experiencing any problems with your network now.If you do decide to update, make sure it’s when some downtime wouldn’t be catastrophic.You must update your Air Port base station using Air Port Utility on your Mac or an i OS device with the free Air Port Utility app installed (the download isn’t available via the Apple Support Web page or Software Update).A few people are reporting problems with these updates, although it’s hard to know how widespread they are.
