Apple on Tuesday released new models of Time Capsule, its combination backup drive and wireless base station.The new Time Capsules are available in 2TB and 3TB capacities--previously, Time Capsule had topped out at 2TB.

Time Capsule connects to a wireless network, allowing users to back up Macs on the network via OS X's Time Machine feature. The Time Capsules also include a Gigabit Ethernet WAN port and three Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports, as well as a USB port for connecting a printer or external drive.

The new Time Capsules still use the 802.11n Wi-Fi networking standard, with dual-band operation available for 802.11b/g devices like the iPhone and iPod touch. Other than the boosted hard drive capacities, it doesn't appear the new Time Capsules score any new features.

The 2TB Time Capsule costs £249 while the 3TB model sells for £399.
