Among the iOS app updates this morning were two from Apple: Airport Utility; and a not-unexpected update to the Remote app.

Remote The updates have a number of changes that relate to the iOS 7 update, with Remote having a big change to its icon: from the Keynote-related brown lectern on a dark background, to a straightforward white arrow on a blue circle.

Airport Utility, which has almost the same interface as the version on the Mac, adds 64-bit support.

For some reason I have the old and the new Remote apps alongside on my iPhone, but not in my iTunes library. It was still there after the sync. The information from Apple tells us that this has been completely redesigned for iOS 7 and adds support for iTunes 11.1. As long as I can still run Keynote presentations that will be fine for me.
