A new rumor popped up on Thursday that claimed that Apple is working on a new range of AirPort routers and an iCloud Time Machine.
According to what is reported by my source l on macOS 13 there should be a version of Time Machine (Mac backup system) completely redone, integrated with iCloud Drive. In addition, Apple is expected to introduce new AirPorts in November #Apple #AppleRumor

The rumor is explicit about how Apple is working on an iCloud-centric Time Machine for Macs and new AirPort hardware…
FCC filings on May 23 has apparently revived some rumors. In that filing, Apple details a device by name of “A2657” and its purpose seems to be as a network adapter of some sort.
We don’t think it’s a new AirPort, because the Wi-Fi on it only supports up to 802.11n and it also includes NFC which would be unusual to see on router. And at 32GB of storage it’s not going to be a new version of AirPort Time Capsule…
The other part of the rumor on Thursday mentions a redesigned version of Time Machine that integrates with iCloud Drive. It would have to be a radical redesign, because this is hugely different than how iCloud Drive or Time Machine currently function… Maybe iCloud Time Machine would work alongside AirPort. A 32GB device suggests that it would contain only the most recent snapshots of your Mac system.
MacDailyNews Take: Fingers crossed that this is true. We’d love to see a reliable Apple AirPort Wi-Fi Mesh System debut at WWDC or this fall!
Interns, TTK! Happy Memorial Day Weekend for those in the United States and prost, everyone! 🍻🍻🍻
