Product Information

Back up a lifetime’s worth of memories with AirPort Time Capsule, a wireless hard drive that works seamlessly with Time Machine in OS X. It’s also a fully featured Wi-Fi base station with the latest 802.11ac technology and simultaneous dual-band support. Choose from 2TB and 3TB models.
  • 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.

    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.

    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.

    Did i NEED it? Not sure, had a airport extreme and express (to extend range) in home and decided to replace both with this 3TB 201 Did i NEED it? Not sure, had a airport extreme and express (to extend range) in home and decided to replace both with this 3TB 2013 Time Capsule and have an easy backup drive built in, so far excellent. Range seems to be way better, set up was a breeze, just left everything at default settings (didn't mess with channels, or 5gz) and so far getting my paid for speeds throughout the house on speedtest on iPhone 5's, macbook pro retina, air, iPads etc. The time machine backup is also amazingly a breeze, backing up 3 different machines, don't have to partition the drive based on which machine, you just tell it to backup to the time capsule and it figures it out for you. Love it. One small minor wish, Apple make a BLACK one please, it would blend in with people's components better like the apple tv, but whatever.

    I found this extremely easy to setup and it is working well. I am really happy with the Bonjour printing support. On my Mac it w I found this extremely easy to setup and it is working well. I am really happy with the Bonjour printing support. On my Mac it worked without any changes. On my Windows 7 box, I downloaded the Bonjour driver and then it worked.

    The time machine backup is going to take 18 hours for starters but after that I'm looking forward to having constant backups on the mac.

    This unit is larger than I expected, about the size of a brick. It is quite heavy, probably from the hard drive within.

    Overall, I'm happy with this purchase.

    My experience with this has not been the best, I expected better for the price (I bought the latest redesigned model)

    I've just My experience with this has not been the best, I expected better for the price (I bought the latest redesigned model)

    I've just started logging every issue I have, but haven't collected enough data to use in in this review, but wanted to share my experience to date.

    The odd thing is that I bought this to replace my airport extreme router, which I was very happy with. I assumed this would be at least as good, but where my last one was very stable, this one needs to restarted every two weeks, either because it can't be found, or internet is having issue. A reboot typically fixes it, but for a $400 device, its ridiculous to walk up to it to do a manual reboot so frequently.

    Especially the 5GHz radio band (the fast band), seems to be less robust.

    Also, shortly after I had bought it, I lost a good bit of data which I was not happy about. My computer had reported that the backup had completed successfully, but when upgrading a drive and doing a restore from the Time Capsule (which was another headache), I discovered problems with my music and photo backups (I spent significant time cleaning up, integrating, and organizing these libraries, and I completely lost those and still trying to recover from that), . Any backup I do to a regular USB drive i've never had a problem (and they are easier to restore from). Its still a little mysterious to me how or why these were not successfully backed up.

    If I hadn't giving my old Airport Extreme to my sister, I would have sent this back, but now i'm kind of stuck with it. If I could do over, I would switch back to my airport extreme for a router, and just get a normal USB drive and plug that my Mac. One upside of this device over a regular USB drive is that my laptop and desktop macs can both wireless backup (hopefully next time my data will be there if I need it).

    Lastly (not my last issue, just the last one I will write about) is that i've disconnected my Nest thermostat from using this router and put it back to my AT&T 2-wire router, because I would frequently lose the ability to adjust the thermostat remotely when on the Apple network.

    So, needless to say, not my favorite apple product. The concept is great, its compact, it looks create, its wireless. If you want something that works well, I personally can't recommend this.

Arrived very quickly and setup was a breeze. I was especially excited about the increased speeds, etc. I had had no problems with my little Airport Extreme, but thought the major step up would be a good idea. Well, after about 6 months, I am seriously regretting my purchase. I have Atlantic Broadband as my cable and internet provider. Well, I had just re-installed the ATC-3TB three days ago. Things have been going fairly smoothly... the usual difficulty in recognizing the ATC by my Mac BookPro Retina, and a seemingly reluctance to do backups, for whatever reason. But, over looking that minor annoyance, everything else seemed to be going along swimmingly. Then IT happened again. Sunday evening, around 9:00 pm, internet service all but ceased. No Safari, no FaceBook, nada. Zip. Creeping blue progress line. Went back and re-installed the little AirPort Extreme. Voila! Service back on, everyone back on line. We are all happy. I guess I can use the ATC as a plug in backup and keep my old AirPort Extreme as my router. Pretty darn expensive hard drive.
