The Apple AirPort Setup devices are out of production but the app to control them is alive and well: Apple updates it with support for the larger displays of iPhone X and iPad Pro. It may come as a surprise to you, but that’s how Apple wants to go about things especially relating to AirPort Utility.
Despite the fact that AirPort series of products are no longer manufactured, but Apple is aware of the fact that many users are using AirPort products, let it be AirPort Express, AirPort Extreme or AirPort Time Capsule Setup. Moreover, an incredible software named ‘AirPort Utility’ controls all those products. That software can now be accessed through the large screens of iPhone X and iPad Pro.
No more black bands for those using the AirPort Utility app on iPhone X: Apple has recently released version 1.3.5 of the software that, in addition to bug fixes and general performance improvements, introduces support for a higher display resolution of the last iPhone, on the market for almost a year now.
The application is useful for managing the Wi-Fi network and AirPort bases, including AirPort Express, AirPort Extreme and AirPort Time Capsule, also supports the increased display of the new 10.5 “iPad Pro and the old 12.9 screen model”, on which up to now the contents of the app were slightly blurred.
From the app, you can also view a graphical overview of the network and connected devices, change the network and base settings, or manage advanced features such as those related to security modes, wireless channels, IPv6 protocol configuration and more.
This is a small but appreciated update for users who have the new mobile devices from Apple, although these have been out of production for several years (but can still be purchased from third-party retailers while stocks last).
The update also follows the release of the firmware update for second generation AirPort Express 802.11n, which took many people by surprise, as they were not expecting Apple Time Capsule Setup to release an update for a device that it has discontinued a few months ago. But, Apple, as we all know, has the knack of doing the unthinkable released the update, which users can download to enhance the functionality of AirPort Express.
If you are looking to get that update on your AirPort Express, but don’t know how then you can consult Apple Router Setup and Support Facility. They can help you with this matter in the most suitable way.
AirPort Utility is available for free on the App Store in a universal version for iPhone and iPad, while on MacOS Mojave is among the pre-installed system apps.
