With AirPort Time Capsule, you get a superfast Wi-Fi base station and an easy-to-use backup device all in one. And backing up your data couldn't be simpler. Just set it up once and AirPort Time Capsule does the rest. It works with Time Machine in OS X to back up your Mac automatically and wirelessly, so you never have to worry about losing anything important again. Every photo. Every file. Every song. Even your apps and OS X settings are saved.

802.11ac - the definition of fast
More than just a wireless hard drive, AirPort Time Capsule is also a full-featured Wi-Fi base station with the latest three-stream 802.11ac technology. Now you can reach data rates of up to 1.3 Gbps - triple the previous 802.11n standard. Which means up to three times faster Wi-Fi. You also get double the channel bandwidth, with 80 MHz-wide channels providing more room for more data to flow faster than ever. And if you have 802.11 a/b/g/n devices, AirPort Time Capsule maximizes that connection as well. What you do with all that extra speed is up to you.

Simultaneous dual-band support
AirPort Time Capsule features simultaneous dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi. That means it transmits at both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequencies at the same time. So no matter which band your wireless devices use, they'll automatically connect to the best available band for the fastest possible performance.

Beamforming puts the focus on your device
With 802.11ac technology comes the intelligent, powerful beamforming antenna array. Most base station antennas emit an equal and constant Wi-Fi signal in all directions. But the beamforming antenna array is smarter - it knows where an 802.11ac device is on the network. Then AirPort Time Capsule targets its signal to that device. So your Wi-Fi signal is stronger, clearer, and faster.

A top-down approach to design
For the design of AirPort Time Capsule, Apple took an approach that centered around performance. Apple made it taller and put the antennas at the top, creating a higher platform for dispersing the signal. Apple also increased the number of antennas. There are now six of them - three for the 2.4 GHz band and three for the 5 GHz band. Together with 802.11ac wireless technology, they let you connect faster, farther, and with more power than ever before. The bar for Wi-Fi base stations has been raised. In every way.

Smaller footprint, more desk space
The vertical design not only improves Wi-Fi performance, it also saves you valuable desk space. At less than 10 cm square, the footprint of AirPort Time Capsule is 75 percent smaller than its predecessor. And to keep everything tidy, even the power supply is built in. Which means AirPort Time Capsule takes up no more space than it should.

Share another hard drive
In addition to the 2 TB or 3 TB of storage in AirPort Time Capsule, you can turn any external USB hard drive into another secure drive to share across your Wi-Fi network and access securely over the Internet. All the documents, videos, photos, and other files instantly become available to anyone on the network, Mac and PC users alike.

Print without wires
The USB 2-port in AirPort Time Capsule is also great for sharing a printer across your wireless network. Just plug it in and everyone on your network can take advantage of one centrally available printer. Wirelessly, of course.

Get online safely and securely
AirPort Time Capsule includes a built-in firewall that creates a barrier between your network and the Internet, protecting your data from malicious attacks. When you set up AirPort Time Capsule, the firewall is automatically turned on, so you don't have to do a thing. Except enjoy the web with peace of mind.

Put out the Wi-Fi welcome mat for guests
With the guest networking feature, you can set up a separate Wi-Fi network just for guests. Use a different password or no password at all. A guest network allows access only to the Internet, so your primary network - including any external hard drive, printer, or other LAN-attached device - remains secure.

Connect to Wi-Fi from any device
Mac. PC. iPhone. iPad. Apple TV. Really, any Wi-Fi-enabled 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.

Go the wired route if you want
AirPort Time Capsule includes three Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports for fast wired connectivity with a desktop computer, network drive, DVR, or other device.
