    Why does Apple not release a NAS for the home user to backup iTunes, Photos and use it for TM?

    The Apple NAS would be built for the die hard Apple users. The Apple NAS could stream movies to ATVs and have an ethernet port and have Wifi. They could make a two or four drive NAS which users could remove if needed. I know Apple has to have a reason to get into a market and it needs to be profitable.

    Essentially, a Mac Mini could be NAS. I guess it is wishful thinking on my part.

    Welcome to iMore.

    It's nice to dream and I mean that in the best way. I own 2 NAS. One a 2 bay and one a 16 bay. There is still no way I would buy a NAS from Apple if they made one. The price would be out of reach. There are so many on the market to compete with and these days it seems Apple is more invested in the iPhone. There are rumors they may stop making routers and time capsules. So I could never see it happening.
