Following reports that Apple will refresh the Time Capsule line-up at next week’s WWDC, possibly to enable background caching of software updates, comes new word about what to expect: the new Time Capsules will run on iOS and come with embedded A4 or A5 CPUS.
According to the almost always infallible Ars Technica’s source:
Our own source tells Ars that the revised hardware is believed to be built around Apple’s own A4 or A5 processor, and will run iOS much like the most recent Apple TV model.
If so, that’s quite the change for Time Capsule, but it makes sense if Time Capsule is to interact more closely with iOS devices and iCloud. Could a new Time Capsule be the biggest surprise at WWDC this year?.
