What is the best way of backing up the data on Apple iMac, Apple MacBooks, Air’s and Pro’s.

In the last few years Apple decided to stop supply the Airport Time Capsule, since they appeared to conclude they could make more off customers by charging them for storage.

Backing up an Apple device wirelessly now depends on non-Apple products such as the following:

  • Wireless External Hard Drives (eg WD 2TB My Passport Wireless Pro Hard Drive)
  • NAS Drive (plugged into a modem, router or switch)

Just remember, backing up wirelessly is always going to be much slower than simply plugging an external drive into your Mac using a USB cable.
