    Apple Updates AirPort Utility — Now With 64-Bit Support



    In more welcome airport-related news than the reports that Apple’s Maps app steers people the wrong way across Fairbanks Airport taxiway, Apple has released an update (version 1.3.3) of its AirPort Utility — the app which allows you to manage your Wi-Fi base stations, including AirPort Express, AirPort Extreme, and AirPort Time Capsule, from the comfort of your iOS device.

    Cult of Mac previously reported on the AirPort Utility update which took place on the same day as the same day as the official launch of iOS 7: offering a new icon and UI based on the visual design of the new operating system. This time the AirPort Utility app has been updated with 64-bit support, which optimizes it to work with the A7 processor used in the new iPhone 5s, iPad Air, and yet-to-be-released iPad Mini 2.





    The new version is freely available at the App Store, compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPads running iOS 6.0 or later. Apple also released the latest version of Remote, now featuring an iOS 7-inspired design and support for iTunes 11.1.

    One thing I'm not clear on about the Time Capsule. I understand that it backs up daily.

    What happens if you just want to clear a lot of gigabytes of files off your Mac but retain them on your time capsule?

    Do the deleted MacBook files get also deleted from the Time Capsule at the daily MacBook backup? Or do they stay on the Time Capsule till it starts running out of space?

    Time Machine takes hourly backups. It will only back up those files that have changed since the previous backup. If you delete a file on your Mac, it won't be present in the following backup but will be there in the backup before you deleted it. However, if you had edited the file before deleting it, those edits will obviously not be present in the previous backup file. So, time machine allows you to roll back and recover files accidentally deleted, but it has it's limitations.

    Ok, so the fact that it only backs up what it "sees" at that moment in time means that it didn't delete on the capsule the files already there. I believe I can work with that.Thanks.

    Apple fixes USB HDD issues with AirPort Express, Time Capsule firmware update



    In a firmware update issued on Thursday, Apple addressed a few minor problems with its newest 802.11ac AirPort Extreme and AirPort Time Capsule base stations, including a problem with USB hard drive connectivity.

    According to the release notes, Apple's firmware update 7.7.2 applies to AirPort Extreme and Time Capsule Wi-Fi base stations that support the 802.11ac protocol.

    The most pressing issue fixed with the update is a bug that prevented USB hard drives connected to an AirPort from appearing as an available disk in Time Machine. Apple's base stations allow users to connect external hard drives to maximize storage space, or make more storage available wirelessly.

    Also addressed is an issue that caused intermittent WAN outages for some users, and another that resulted in a network loop.

    Apple's firmware update 7.7.2 is available for download now from Apple's Support Downloads webpage.
