Is it possible to download the iOS update into configuratior without connecting an iPad to it? Evey time I try to prepare an iPad, it starts downloading the update and states that "connection was lost and unable to finish downloading"

Any thoughts?

Yes. First, download the iOS update using our database of iOS Devices. You need to download a version for every device in use at your organization.

Next, you need to add these to configurator. Here's the path (it is really long and repetitive):

  • (your home folder)
  • Library
  • Containers
  • Data
  • Library
  • Caches
  • Firmware

To get into the Library folder from the Finder, hold down the option key and click the "Go" menu. After that the navigation is straightforward.

Drag the .ipsw file you downloaded into the folder, launch Configurator, and you are there!
