Apple has released an important update for the router, which is no longer sold.
Tim cook the company has prepared the present gift for all owners of AirPort Express base station. Now you can control it from the app “House,” and used to broadcast audio content with AirPlay 2.
This feature lit up the still in beta iOS version 11.4, but didn’t work, as there was no corresponding update for the router. In test iOS 12 the opportunity to connect the AirPort Express to the “House” was also mentioned but was also unavailable. Now it finally worked on all devices.
The signature Apple router has a 3.5 mm Jack connection where you can connect a speaker system or any stationary column. And thanks to AirPlay technology you can stream audio to the AirPort Express, thereby making any existing acoustics in wireless, and even support Siri.
The most interesting thing in this update that Apple removed all the routers from the sale and for many years has not updated the utility to configure them in the App Store. The company literally abandoned the development of wireless base stations, Wi-Fi, but her recent actions contradict this idea. Perhaps the company will revive this trend in the future.
