This application is morbidly outdated. Thousands still use airport routers. Update this app for god sake! Apple revive your network connection line! Big missed opportunity!
Since 2012, I have used the Apple AirPort utility for two different networks, each using an AirPort Time Capsule as my main wireless base stations along with AirPort Express base stations to extend my network connectivity. When I have moved to a new office location, this utility has made connecting to a new network easy, backing up to AirPort Time Capsule is very important since I use a variety of Macs, and iOS devices.
Wife still has iOS 13 and utility functions there. I have upgraded to iOS 14.x and Utility no longer recognizes Apple router, Time Capsule, or Apple Express. Kind of pointless, don’t you think?
The app is essential for managing Apple Airport devices, and I use it to handle many. Configuring access management is limited, and NAT and port mapping seems restricted as well. To add to it, I’ve recently added more devices to my network and find sometimes the visual layout of them all (I’m managing 10) ends up spreading them out wider than the iPhone screen, which creates two problems. The first is that I cannot scroll to see the far left devices without the screen snapping back to center. The second is that often the left-most device is completely unselectable, almost as if the tapping detection area of the app is cut off to 75% of the screen from the right. This is true in either portrait or landscape orientation. I would love to see the app updated, but it looks like it’s not getting much attention as Apple discontinued the Airport device line a few years ago now.
Not working after updating iPad to 14.2 It is no longer saying my Apple router.
The Wi-Fi scanner feature is the part of the app I use the most. It tells me the strength and channel of all Wi-Fi networks in the neighborhood. You have to go to the Settings app and scroll down to the Airport Utility section to enable Wi-Fi scanning.
Can’t find my wifi.
If you don’t see WiFi scanner option, go to settings and toggle the option on. No idea why it was disabled by default on my iPad
Not useful if your iOS device is use a third-party router.
Have had this app since the extreme launched. Totally agree with what people are saying about lack of features and intuitivity. This is Apple and yet their router app seems more outdated than other manufacturers. Come one Apple get it together! Since last iOS update however my phone can’t seem to detect my extreme or express can’t connect or configure. Great!
