    Apple is running out of AirPort base stations.jpg

    When Apple announced that it was discontinuing its entire AirPort wireless router line-up at the end of April and would keep selling them until all stock was gone, it was inevitable that the day would come when supplies became scarce, and now, according to MacRumors, that day is here, less than a month after Apple made the announcement.

    If you were still hoping to pick up an AirPort Extreme, you’re now out of luck as they are all sold out, unless you happen to live in countries such as Australia, Canada, Japan, or Singapore.

    AirPort Express and AirPort Time Capsule models are still available, however, on Apple’s U.S. online store, and some other countries, but there’s no way of knowing how long that will remain the situation.

    Also, in some European countries, including France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK, there is no sign of any AirPort products whatsoever on Apple’s online store. It’s always worth checking the retail stores in those countries, however, as there may still be some stock remaining.

    Not sure if people realize that these things were last updated in 2013. There's better/cheaper technology out there that's been developed since then.

    Yes, hardware. My mistake for not being clear.
