Product information
The Apple AirPort Time Capsule brings ultra-fast wireless, simple backup tools and a large 3 TB storage space.

AirPort storage

The AirPort Capsule is more than just a hard drive. The full-featured device has been developed with a WiFi base station running the latest three-stream 802.11ac technology. This gives you the ability to transfer data at rapid rates of up to 1.3 Gbps. It also gives you double the channel bandwidth at 80 MHz – allowing faster data flow.

Storing data couldn't be easier and more convenient.

Data back-up

Backup and store data from multiple Mac computers over the wireless network. This powerful hard drive can support a number of Mac devices, with no need to connect to your Mac computers with cables - store and backup wirelessly from another room.

Time Machine compatible

AirPort Time capsule has been developed to work seamlessly with Time Machine in OS X Leopard or later. This allows you to protect your data more efficiently.

Time Machine continuously makes a backup copy of your data and saves a number of versions, giving you easy access to restore lost files.

Strong and secure wireless

The Time Capsule hard drive is equipped with a powerful beamforming antenna array. This intelligent base station antenna knows where the 802.11ac device is located on the network. It targets that particular signal, resulting in a stronger and faster connection.

With a built-in firewall, the Apple hard drive creates a barrier between the network and the internet. The firewall activates automatically when the device is switched on - you don't need to a do a thing.

Style and design

The tall, striking and space-saving design is not just stylish - six antennas are placed at the top for an improved signal. The six antennas have been evenly split between 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands.

Set-up and management

As soon as you connect the AirPort Time Capsule to a DSL or cable modem the easy-to-follow set-up assistant will take care of the rest for you.

AirPort Utility for iOS and OS X allows you to manage the AirPort Time Capsule from your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch or Mac.

Hard drive sharing

You can even connect your old USB hard drive to the Apple AirPort Time Capsule and all your photos, videos and other files will be made available over the wireless network.

The USB port can also be used to share a printer across the network in the same way - just connect the printer to the Time Capsule and everyone on the network can benefit from wireless printing.

With faster wireless, seamless back-up and more storage space, the Apple AirPort Time Capsule offers the very best of wireless storage.
