Apple's wireless router lineup includes the AirPort Express, AirPort Extreme, and AirPort Time Capsule, which sell for $99, $199, and $299, respectively. All are said to have lagged behind other top router manufacturers in the adoption of new standards.

 

Combined with Apple Watch and Apple TV sales, the wireless router lineup generated $11.1 billion and 5 percent of sales for Apple in fiscal 2016.
