Finding iOS Software Update files – part 2

In versions of Apple Configurator prior to 1.2.1, the .ipsw files were stored in the file system.

According to this technote,, in version 1.2.1 the .ipsw files are copied into the Configurator database. This leaves us with either using the files downloaded by iTunes or from a site like Felix Bruns’.

If you do come across articles which point  you to folders inside ~/Library/ to look for .ipsw files, check the date of the article – it may be from the earlier version of Configurator
