Apple may no longer be selling the AirPort Extreme and Time Capsule in U.S. retail stores, according to a new report. As first noted by MacRumors, shoppers at several Apple Stores have reported that the AirPort Extreme and Time Capsule are out of stock, and at least one support representative has confirmed that Apple pulled all stock from U.S. Stores.
Interestingly, the two products appear to still be available internationally — something the report speculates could be related to an upcoming FCC deadline of June 2 related to router software security rules. Likewise, the base stations are still available online for U.S. shoppers, as well as from third-party retailers.
Regardless, neither base station has been updated in some time. In fact, 2013's WWDC was the last time either product saw a refresh. As we are fast approaching this year's WWDC, it's easy to read into the timing of this. However, there haven't yet been any murmurings that a refresh is in the cards, so take that for what you will.
