Apple makes firmware updates available to AirPorts (Express, Extreme and Time Capsule)

First of all, let's not confuse AirPorts (routers) with AirPods (wireless headphones). Duly identified products, let us news. ?

Apple today released two updates for its base stations: the AirPort Base Station Firmware Update 7.6.8 (for AirPorts Express, Extreme and Time Capsule with 802.11n Wi-Fi standard) and AirPort Base Station Firmware Update 7.7.8 (for base stations with the 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard).

The updates, according to Apple, address an issue that could prevent users from accessing AirPort using the Back to My Mac feature.

Upgrade to AirPorts Wi-Fi bases

Making the update simple: just open AirPort Utility. When you open it, you will see a red ball with a number next to the name of the base station; on it you have to click / tap. If AirPort is protected with a device password, you will only see the label if you click / tap and enter the password.

On the Mac, popup details display an update button; on iOS devices, tap ?Back? on the details screen and then ?Download and Install?.

Apple's routers recently took first place in a well-known satisfaction survey in the United States; interestingly, there are rumors that Apple is leaving this market and does not intend to launch new versions of accessories.

As the owner of two AirPorts (an older Express and a new Time Capsule), I can say that these are great products!
