Apple Configurator App Gets an Update
Apple Configurator, an app that makes it easy for anyone to mass configure and deploy iOS devices, has been updated.
Three simple workflows let you prepare new iOS devices for immediate distribution, supervise devices that need to maintain a standard configuration, and assign devices to users. Quickly update your devices simultaneously to the latest version of iOS, configure settings, and install apps and data for your students, employees, or patrons.
Apple Configurator can be used by larger organizations and businesses to set up new devices, install enterprise apps, and enroll each device with a Mobile Device Management solution for remote management by an IT administrator. It is perfect for the classroom or student lab where devices need to be quickly refreshed and kept up to date with the correct settings, approved policies, apps and data. Apple Configurator can also be used to personalize devices with data and documents for specific users.
What's New In This Version:
This update improves overall stability and performance and includes the following:
Improved reliability and ease of use when installing paid apps with Volume Purchase Program redemption codes
A new preference to disable the automatic removal of apps or profiles installed by the user when a configuration is reapplied to a supervised device
A new preference to disable reapplying a configuration each time a supervised device is connected to Apple Configurator
The profile editor now indicates when a profile cannot be installed on a supervised device due to a missing value in a required field
You can download Apple Configurator from the Mac App Store for free.
