Where Do I EVEN Start - OH iOS7:(!!!!!

    Well well well - where do I even begin?  How about - NOT sure I'm a fan of iOS7!!!!  Since that update came out - nothing but TROUBLE TROUBLE TROUBLE in Configurator Land:(!!  Lots of things happened - quick recap!
    Students were coming in last week saying that they couldn't access this or that, and they needed this app for this elective class - so I simply did what I do; hooked up the iPad, chose the app needed, and usually works perfectly - NOPE!!  For whatever reason (and I KNOW it's because of the update as ALL had done the update), their iPads wouldn't work with the iTunes I had.  However - I had done the same thing with OTHER iPads that were updated and it worked fine - why not these 5??

So here's what I found out......

1.  The updated iOS7 likes to work with the updated iTunes - which we didn't have in Configurator yet, therefore we had to update that - but it wouldn't.....

2.  We couldn't update iTunes because we didn't have the update for Configurator to go with it - but we couldn't update configurator............

3. When trying to update configurator, it wanted Mountain Lion as the operating system and we didn't have that!  So.......

4.  We spent the $19.99 to buy Mountain Lion to update the operating system.....

5. Now, were able to update Configurator......

6.  FINALLY were able to update iTunes - YIKES!!!

However - because of that MADNESS and updates - when we hooked up the iPads some took it some didn't - we had to restart iPads, restart Configurator, change profiles, blah, blah, blah

BUT - after the madness we are GOOD TO GO!!  We'll I shouldn't say that FOR SURE - but so far so good:)!!  FINGERS CROSSED and SO THANKFUL FOR CASEY!!!  Our tech guy is AMAZING!!!!!!!!  He spent time this weekend updating and figuring things out - YAHOO!!!

Ok - STILL not a fan of iOS7 as I DO NOT like the look, ways things happen, etc.. - HOWEVER - I'm a FAITHFUL so I know all will be fine!!

Happy Day,
Mrs. I:)
