It is bad enough that Apple feels the need to lock down their phones and operating system, but they felt the need to reinvent how you interface with the management of a router as well.
You can not log into an Apple branded router like EVERY other router in existence. There is NO HTTP GUI, there is NO HTTPS GUI. You MUST install software to configure their routers.
Since there is no HTTP or HTTPS access into the router guess what? No remote administration!
No ALG settings, so using an Apple Airport (Extreme), so that means no SIP ALG settings - therefore making them not very VoIP friendly.
If your into iPhones, fine buy an iPhone, many companies provide functionality and compatibility with their phones and tablets. If your into Macs, which I don't know why you would be, I guess it would be OK to buy a Mac laptop or desktop. But please for the health of your network, only trust a company who builds network equipment for your router purchase.
Do yourself a favor and stick with Linksys / Cisco routers. They only build network equipment, thus have the most experience in building products that will provide the functionality and flexibility for your networking needs.
