WWDC Apple Keynote announced a new feature today: ‘PC-Free’ support built into the iOS 5 software update for all iOS device (iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad). Finally, you can manage your classroom iOS devices with ease as Apple integrates over-the-air syncing and also over-the-air OS updates. Brian Heater at Engadget summarizes the announcement:
Love your iPhone, but hate all of the PC-based tethering it entails? Apple has some good news: the company is taking its “post-PC” stance a step further, letting you activate your smartphone straight out of the box without syncing it to a computer. Also big news is the addition of over-the-air updates, which will let you receive changes without plugging the handset in. And some big news for music fans: users will be able to sync their iTunes libraries over WiFi connections with the update.
