The new Airport Extreme and Time Capsule, named in a software update

9to5mac y MacRumors

I already suspected then that this update might have something to do with the new generation routers that have been rumored for a few weeks now, but at first the new software was limited to fix small bugs. And that’s what we all thought until the developers came across references to next-generation Airport Extreme and Time Capsule units in the preferences of those updates.

As you can see in the image above, it refers to an Airport Extreme fifth generation and a Time Capsule fourth generation, both with the ability to transmit Wifi signal to 802.11n. The most interesting thing is that according to what we can read, the rumored feature of receiving and managing software updates automatically by these new devices can become a reality:

That is, if the router detects that there is a Mac and an iPhone on your Wifi network, it will automatically download and store software updates to serve as a basis for conveniently updating our devices. Now that we are at the doors of the arrival of iCloud , we could not be facing a better time for a functionality like this to become possible.

As for the arrival of these new devices, there are no specific dates . Nor has anything been specified about whether they will be equipped with an A4 or A5 processor or whether they will work with iOS. Shipments of current models are scarce and new ones are already present in the company’s software, so there doesn’t have to be much left.
