Apple Configurator 1.4 supports iOS 7, configures new features
Alongside the release of iOS 7, Apple on Thursday updated its mass-configuration utility Apple Configurator to version 1.4 (free). The update adds support for iOS 7, and also gives administrators the ability to turn (or off) some of the new features such as AirDrop or allowing Notifications Center or Control Center on the lock screen -- the latter of which has turned out to be a small security risk. In addition, version 1.4 allows the configuration and control of AirPrint Printers and AirPlay mirroring destinations and passwords among other improvements.
Early iPhone 5s, 5c unboxing videos hit the web
With parts of Australia commencing sales of the new iPhone models nearly a full day ahead of the US, usage and "unboxing" videos of the new retail units have begun appearing en masse on video outlets such as YouTube. The increasingly-rare Gold iPhone 5s unboxing was the subject of a video by Ben Pasternak, who shows off his new unit and red leather case. He also created a similar video for his new yellow iPhone 5c, which is accompanied by a black Apple case. It must be said that both iPhones look very appealing in the videos, shown in natural light in the outdoors-shot post.
