Although the iPhone X has been on the market for more than 10 months, we can still find a large number of applications that have not yet adapted to the new interface This device offers us. The last application that has been updated to be compatible with the iPhone X is precisely from Apple. We are talking about the AirPort Utility application.
For all those users who continue to use the AirPort devices, it is certainly great news, since everything seemed to indicate that Apple had completely forgotten about these products when it officially stopped selling them a few months ago. The rebirth of the AirPort came from the hand of a firmware update they received a few days ago and in which they were made compatible with AirPlay 2.
It is especially striking that Apple has updated these devices when in theory it should not after removing them from its catalog and offering no alternative. When Apple announced that it stopped selling these products, he said that in the market we can find excellent alternatives that supplement the functions of these devices.
The AirPort Utility allows us to manage our Wi-Fi network and our AirPort base stations, including AirPort Express, AirPort Extreme and AirPort Time Capsule directly from our iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. In addition, it also allows us to consulate a graphic summary of our network and Wi-Fi devices that are connected to the network.
It also allows us to change the base station and network settings, manage advanced features such as security modes, wireless channels, IPv6 settings and much more. AirPort utility is available for download completely free of charge through the link that I leave at the end of this article.
