So by now you’ve heard the news about this little device called the iPhone 5, right? It’s being touted by Apple as the “the most beautiful product we have ever made.” As part of the launch of this new device, Apple is also launching iOS 6.
Never being out of step technologically, we now have a firmware update available for our Seagate Satellite device. If you use Seagate GoFlex Satellite™ with an iPad®, iPhone® or iPod™ touch and are planning to upgrade any of your Apple® mobile devices to iOS 6, a firmware update on your GoFlex Satellite product is mandatory in order to maintain compatibility. Without this firmware update, your Apple mobile device will not be able to connect to the Wi-Fi network created by your GoFlex Satellite device.
Trust me when I say that updating GoFlex Satellite is simple and will only take a couple of minutes. It’s so simple, that I’ve even documented the instructions for you below.
So get updated today so you can get back into your media-streaming groove.
