About AirPort Utility for iOS

  • AirPort Utility for iOS is available via iTunes or the App Store.
  • Some features of an AirPort product may only be available when using AirPort Utility for OS X or Windows.

Notes

  • Some AirPort Base Station features are available only while administering your Wi-Fi network from the latest version of OS X.
  • In Japan, AirPort is called AirMac.
