Apple this week updated its official AirPort Utility app. The rare patch should improve security and eliminate issues users were experiencing after upgrading to iOS 13.

Apple’s AirPort hardware was discontinued well over a year ago. But it seems plenty of people are still using AirPort devices — enough for Apple to continue supporting them today.

The AirPort Utility app lets you manage your network from iPhone or iPad. And it should now work properly under Apple’s most recent software releases.

The short release notes for the most recent AirPort Utility update promise “general stability and security improvements.” Those who had issues under iOS 13 before now say the problems are fixed.

This AirPort Utility upgrade — the first in more than a year — follows new firmware releases for AirPort Express, AirPort Extreme, and Time Capsule Base Stations that were rolled out over the summer.

AirPort Utility lets you lets you set up any AirPort devices in your home, then see a graphical overview of your Wi-Fi network. It shows information on connected devices, including IP addresses and more.

You can download AirPort Utility version 1.3.6 from the App Store for free today.
