Apple is set to exit the WiFi router business by canning its AirPort product, according to reports.
Bloomberg reported that former AirPort engineers are now working on other teams, including Apple TV development.
The report claims that Apple began disbanding the team over the past year in a bid to focus on its more lucrative customer-facing products, such as the iPhone, iPad and MacBook, that generate the bulk of its revenue.
Apple's router lineup, which comprises the £99 AirPort Express, £199 AirPort Extreme and Time Capsule models, hasn't been updated since 2013, and haven't even seen a refresh to support the latest the latest 802.11ac wireless standard.
The trio of products fit into the "other products" category of Apple’s annual financial results, which also includes the Apple Watch and Apple TV, and accounted for around just five per cent ($11.1bn) of the firm's total sales in fiscal 2016.
It's unclear whether Apple plans to stop selling the routers altogether, as all three products are still available to pick up over at the firm's online store.
News of the reported demise of Apple's router business comes just weeks after it was revealed that Apple has also decided to leave the monitor business, and will not build a successor to its Cinema Display or Thunderbolt Display line-up.
Instead, Apple has partnered with LG to make new 4K and 5K UltraFine Displays that connect via USB-C and Thunderbolt 3.
