Bloomberg reported today that Apple is getting out of the router business. I have never owned an Apple router, but based on my research, I tried to steer people away from them on my RouterSecurity.org site.
One reason I offered was that Apple has not updated their routers since 2013. Not just the hardware, the software too. Last December, Glenn Fleishman wrote that the cheapest Apple router, the AirPort Express, was last updated in 2012. Apple routers felt abandoned long before Bloomberg reported that they really were abandoned.
