Disassembly of the new AirPort Extreme base confirms space for 3.5 ″ HDD only used in Time Capsules

THE iFixit returned to work with everything! After the recent disassembly of the ?new? 16GB iPod touch, just now we brought the new 13-inch MacBook Air and yesterday they also opened one of the new AirPort Extreme bases.

Here's an overview of the thing:

The highlights are:

  • Model A1521, with IEEE 802.11a / b / g / n / ac Wi-Fi support.
  • The high stature can be justified by the internal presence of its outside source.
  • There is, as expected, an empty space for a 3.5 ? HDD used in Time Capsules. For the time being iFixit has not found any connector that would allow the conversion of an AirPort Extreme into a Time Capsule, but it will investigate further calmly later.
  • Broadcom is the supplier of the main components of the product.
