Apple has unbridled enthusiasm for every new product, upgrade, or update, and as much as I like the company’s products, attention to detail, and privacy, I admit to what Wil Gomez outlines as ‘One More Thing.’
Apple needs to recognize the danger that a hardware company with many products that mingle well together must face. Managing all this hardware takes time and effort. More hardware merely mores more settings, more configurations, more interoperability, and more settings after that.
So many Apple products means each one must be managed individually, and that takes effort and time that grows as new products and functions are added.
What I propose is long overdue– a straightforward method to manage all the settings and configurations on every Apple device from a single app. This app would require each device to provide permissions and each device could easily have a list of what the Central Station app could control or not control, but the concept is a reality elsewhere in the corporate enterprise, so why not for the great unwashed billion or so Apple customers who have to manage each device they own, one-by-one, device after device.
An idea whose time has come.
