Apple Configurator 2 makes it easy to deploy iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, and Apple TV devices in your school or business.
Use Apple Configurator 2 to quickly configure large numbers of devices connected to your Mac via USB with the settings, apps, and data you specify for your students, employees, or customers.
Rebuilt from the ground up, Apple Configurator 2 features a flexible, device-centric design that enables you to configure one or dozens of devices quickly and easily. Simply select a single device or many at once and perform an action. With Apple Configurator 2, you're able to update software, install apps and configuration profiles, rename and change wallpaper on devices, export device information and documents, and much more. You can also inspect any device to see details like serial number and hardware addresses, which apps and profiles are installed, and its console log.
Apple Configurator 2 integrates with the Device Enrollment Program to automate MDM enrollment as well as the Volume Purchase Program to seamlessly distribute apps from the App Store. The all-new Prepare assistant makes it easy to supervise and configure a cart of iPads for the classroom or quickly enroll a large number of devices in your MDM server for ongoing management. The built-in configuration profile editor supports creating and editing profiles with the latest iOS settings.
If you’re configuring devices in an environment where consistency is critical, Blueprints allow you to create a custom configuration for your devices that can be applied with one click. A Blueprint is a template device to which you add configuration profiles and apps and perform actions, just like you would to a connected physical device.
Fully automate Apple Configurator 2 and integrate its capabilities into your existing device management workflows using the included command-line tool, AppleScript scripting library, or Automator Actions.
Support for iCloud Drive enables you to keep your configuration profiles and other settings consistent across multiple Configurator stations.

Never had an issue - does what it says on the tin
not sure what all these other reviewers were using as I've never had an issue using it to set up iPads that are used all across the country! Easy to use, love the blueprint functionality so I can easily apply different configurations to all the different setups we have - can't fault it! the only annoyance is that you have to wipe the device to supervise it but that's more iOS rather than Apple Configurator!
Awful, awful, awful
One of the worst pieces of software I’ve ever had the misfortune to use, and made by Apple themselves…!
So incredibly buggy that you’ll spend hours trying to get it to do basic things that it claims it can do and then end up with a load of near-useless devices.
I currently have a deskful of new iPads that don’t have the apps on they need, despite installing them via Apple Configurator. AC sees them, even the app store sees them as installed so I can’t even manually install them. I just can’t actually use them. At all.
That is one example of many. Almost every ‘feature’ works like this.
If you have less than 100 devices then save yourself the time and just do everything manually, one at a time. Staggeringly, it’ll be easier, quicker and much more reliable. It’ll take you days, but so will this app and at least you’ll eventually get somewhere while keeping more of your sanity. More than 100? God help you.
Deleted and reinstalled now working again
I updated to Mojave and AC2 just stopped working. So I deleted the app and restarted macOS Mojave and reinstalled from the App Store and it's working again. Something must have broken after the OS upgrade.
Onto the app. I like it as it has some nifty features, such as an actually accurate storage info bar, profiles where I can set up different app configurations and apply them to my devices.
