    Automatic wireless backup.

    AirPort Time Capsule includes a 2TB or 3TB hard drive that works with Time Machine in OS X to create the perfect no-hassle backup solution.1 There are no cables, and you can back up all the Mac computers in your home to a central location — automatically, wirelessly, and in the background.

    Ultra-fast 802.11ac Wi-Fi.

    With 802.11ac technology and a powerful beamforming antenna array, AirPort Time Capsule gives you up to 3x faster Wi-Fi and a stronger, clearer signal.2 And because it transmits at both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies at the same time, your wireless devices will automatically connect to the best available band for the fastest performance possible.

    Designed with performance in mind.

    With the antennas at the top of the elevated design, AirPort Time Capsule now has a higher platform for dispersing the signal. We also increased the number of antennas. There are now six of them — three for the 2.4GHz band and three for the 5GHz band. Together with 802.11ac technology, they let you connect faster, farther, and with more power than ever before.

    Easy setup for iOS and OS X.

    Connect your DSL or cable modem to AirPort Time Capsule and use the built-in setup assistant to create your new wireless network in just a few taps from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. If you’re using a Mac, use the built-in AirPort Utility. Setup is just as fast and just as easy.

    image.alt.pdp-airport-share

    Share your hard drive or printer.

    AirPort Time Capsule can turn any external USB hard drive into a secure drive you can share across your Wi-Fi network. So all the documents, videos, photos and other files instantly become available to anyone, Mac and PC users alike. You can even connect a printer and share it wirelessly.

    image.alt.pdp-airport-security

    Compatibility and security.

    Any Wi-Fi device you have will work with AirPort Time Capsule. That’s because it’s compatible with devices using the 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n and 802.11ac specifications. And since AirPort Time Capsule features a built-in firewall that protects your network from malicious Internet attacks, you can enjoy the web with peace of mind.

      For a simpler life

      I've finally been persuaded to go wireless for backup of my content. This piece of kit worked straight out of the box. It took 20 hours to back up my iMac strai I've finally been persuaded to go wireless for backup of my content. This piece of kit worked straight out of the box. It took 20 hours to back up my iMac straight via ethernet, and then I relocated it to use its connectivity to hook up other remotely located gear (TV, XBox and Apple TV) to the AirPort which is connected via ethernet to my BT Hub 4 using a TP Link powerline adapter. It's really handy to have a second wifi network and means my iPad works consistently in my bedroom, for example. Internal walls really are pesky for wifi due to inconsistent connection, whereas suspended wooden floors aren't. So I am pleased with it. I guess one day server farm capacity will mean you'll be able to back up your back up as well via the cloud at a reasonable data storage rate. In the meantime the chance of both Mac and Capsule hard drive failing at the same time should be statistically very unlikely. So all in all, for once the rule that every piece of technology designed to make life simpler actually introduces new complexity is not true, so the time capsule gets five stars for doing the job it says it'll do.

      Apple Guy, but Forced to Return it

      I love Apple products but I was forced to return it. I honestly rather have the Time Capsule than what I was forced to get because in theory it should work bett I love Apple products but I was forced to return it. I honestly rather have the Time Capsule than what I was forced to get because in theory it should work better like most of my experience with Apple. I started with the Time Capsule. It was great initially then the internet crawls after about a day of use. I reset it and within minutes it crawls again. Netflix streaming is impossible. Time Machine backups are painfully slow but my main problem was unreliability. I have 105mps internet with comcast. I could do a speed test and pull in 120mps but yet if I try to load apple.com it lags for literally minutes. I use to work in the Apple store in college and I know my way around osx so I went to the wifi diagnostics tool. The Time Capsule was set to automatic with the same SSID for the 2.4 and 5ghz band but the firmware chose a crowded channel, channel 6 on the 2.4ghz band. I chose channel 3 even though my MacBook Pro was still connecting to 5ghz to see if that would help. It did but only temporarily. At 1st I thought it was my ISP but then I tried my old Netgear router and walla my Apple TV could stream Netflix again. I must have got a lemon I thought so I returned it and got the AirPort Extreme instead. The Time Machine backups were just too slow for me to justify staying with it when I could just connect an external drive to the extreme. So brand new Extreme, guess what happens? Same exact experience! I get on the Apple forums and numerous people are complaining of the same issues. I go to the Apple Genius Bar and they've seen this before but suggest I try another one. After 2 I give up! I ended up getting the Netgear Nighthawk router. It isn't as elegant as Apple's but it's fast and reliable. Also it has USB 3 unlike the USB 2 on Apple's so I actually have faster Time Machine backups. It's been a month and internet hasn't dropped speed once so I know it's not the ISP. Apple please let me know when this is fixed. One of your most loyal fans!

      Great idea... but still in it's beta stage

      I had a Airport Time Capsule for about two weeks, I was able to perform a time machine backup, however, the box got overheated and 12 days later, by whole backu I had a Airport Time Capsule for about two weeks, I was able to perform a time machine backup, however, the box got overheated and 12 days later, by whole backup was gone... Not to mention, almost every 2nd day need a reboot, otherwise my MacBook Pro, iPad, iPhone, apple TV, and a Android phone, loose internet connection (although there's WIFI connection). I revert back to my old ASUS AP, no issues in the past and for sure no issues anytime soon. Pros: Easy to setup Cons: Super high price for a product which have not been tested, lack of knowledge from Apple Support. DON'T COUNT ON THE BACKUP.... Backup doesn't exist, since in 10 days, the whole backup is gone and disk claimed to be reformatted. Apple support guys said this happens because of repeated powercycles... that's BS... so if there's a power outage, my backup is gone??? This is the reason why I give only one star!

      Back up a lifetime’s worth of memories until product dies.

      I have long been a supporter and purveyor of Apple products. However, The 2TB Time Machine product provides a false sense of security as Apple's marketing leads I have long been a supporter and purveyor of Apple products. However, The 2TB Time Machine product provides a false sense of security as Apple's marketing leads you to believe that this device "saves a lifetime's memories." After purchasing the Time Machine in May 2014, I have used this device to store family photos, music and to backup countless work files as I am self employed. The product has seemingly worked great, until I purchased a new 17' mac desktop. I simply wanted to upload my items onto my new computer and come to find out the device reports it is overheating. This is a first for me. Upon taking it to the Apple Store, I was told by the Genius Bar that the device simply stopped working and they could sell me the same model for a $50. While I appreciate the discount, the item offered is the exact same product with the exact same deficiencies. This is not OK. This is not what Steve Jobs would have done. Bottom line, after less than 3 years of utilizing the product, it is dead in the water, and everything that I had stored is now gone. Do not buy this product as backup, as there is no guarantee that it will be there from you when you need it.
