The good thing however is that ipswDownloader offers support for most of the devices wearing an Apple logo, be they iPhones, iPods, Apple TVs or iPads.
The one-window program GUI allows users to choose the device they have and pick a firmware version to download, while also providing valuable information on this file. For iPhones for instance, it shows the baseband associated to each firmware, but also jailbreak and unlock utilities that can be used for the chosen version of firmware.
An “Info” field is also available in order to provide users with more details on a specific firmware version, while a so-called “Apple Info” button displays official software update information.
The download system is very fast and reliable, but it also depends on your Internet connection. The faster your Internet connection is, the quicker all downloads are completed.

All things considered, ipswDownloader does its job very well and supports all Apple devices, including iPads, iPhones, iPods and Apple TVs. It all comes down to a few clicks and with the help of a fast Internet connection, you can quickly get a firmware update right on your desktop.
