AirPort Extreme updates with no identifiable changes

updated 09:30 am EDT, Wed June 22, 2011

Could have better range, heat performance

Apple has quietly updated the AirPort Extreme Wi-Fi router, reports note. The device has a new model number, MD031AM/A, but has no publicized changes, and the same $179 pricetag. It had been thought that Apple might drop the hardware's price and/or bump peak speeds up to 450Mbps.

It was also rumored that Apple might be extending the range of the router and improving its cooling. Both of those changes could in theory have been implemented, since Apple's website makes no mention of related specifications. Yesterday Apple also upgraded its Time Capsule routers, but is only marketing a shift to 2TB and 3TB capacities.

    Looks like it paid off for macnn to use all those question marks and qualifiers like "could" in their news stories.

    The newer model apparently has much higher power output.
