Hot on the heels of the release of iOS 4.3 (http://www.macrumors.com/2011/03/09/apple-releases-ios-4-3-with-airplay-and-safari-improvements-personal-hotspot/), Apple has also pushed out iPhone Configuration Utility 3.3 for Mac OS X (http://support.apple.com/kb/DL851) and Windows (http://support.apple.com/kb/DL926). The utility helps system administrators to deploy iOS devices in enterprise settings.iPhone Configuration Utility lets you easily create, maintain, encrypt, and install configuration profiles, track and install provisioning profiles and authorized applications, and capture device information including console logs.

Configuration profiles are XML files that contain device security policies, VPN configuration information, Wi-Fi settings, APN settings, Exchange account settings, mail settings, and certificates that permit iPhone and iPod touch to work with your enterprise systems.The update presumably makes changes and additions to support devices running iOS 4.3.

The Mac version weighs in at 11.46 MB and requires Mac OS X 10.6, while the Windows version weighs in at 36.43 MB and requires Windows 7, Vista SP1, or XP SP3, along with .NET 3.5 SP1.

Looks like you still can't add proxy servers to the WiFi configuration section. Still don't know why Apple doesn't have this in there.

Because to a majority of the iOS users, this is not important. This is mostly of interest to those that need to configure iOS devices in enterprise environments.

OMG, the iOS device in the icon lacks a home button! It's the iPhone 5!

Well, at least it's interesting apple has drawings of iOS devices without home buttons.

These types of thing from Apple never had a home button.

All that means is that it's been in the pipeline for awhile now.

I hardly think Apple has been thinking about it since March of 2008.

I'd wager it's been in the pipeline since a year before the iPhone was released, when apple was deciding what iPhone 1 would look like. They probably considered going buttonfree entirely before deciding the home button was necessary for the time being while people are still transitioning to a multitouch interface.

I'm sure your right. A buttonless device will have always been on Apples cards. But I doubt they will loose the one reference point that everyone is comfortable with.

Then again they have wiped the scroll wheel from iPod nano, so maybe a buttonless iPhone will arrive soon.

You can remove java update 5 as you already have update 19. Add in Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to supplement your Avira AV. Also add CCleaner or Glary Utilities to clean your registry, history and temporary internet files.

If you are not into programming then you can remove Visual c++

Does the utility work with ipads as well? I mean is there one enterprise utility that configures both devices?
