Apple Configurator makes it easy for anyone to mass configure and deploy iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch in a school, business, or institution.

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.

Prepare devices
• Configure multiple devices simultaneously
• Update devices to the latest version of iOS
• Create and restore a backup of settings and app data from one device to other devices
• Import apps into Apple Configurator and sync them to new devices*
• Use the built-in editor to create and install iOS configuration profiles
• Enroll devices with your Mobile Device Management solution for remote management

Supervise devices
• Organize supervised devices into custom groups
• Automatically apply common configurations to supervised devices
• Quickly reapply a configuration to a supervised device and remove the previous user’s data
• Import apps into Apple Configurator and sync them to supervised devices*
• Define and apply common or sequential names to all devices
• Restrict supervised devices from syncing with other computers

Assign devices
• Add users and groups manually or autopopulate via Open Directory or Active Directory
• Check out a device to a user and restore the user’s settings and data on that device
• Check in a device from a user and and back up the data for later use, possibly on a different device
• Apply custom text, wallpaper, or the user’s picture to a device’s Lock screen
• Import and export documents between your Mac and Apple Configurator
• Sync documents between assigned devices and Apple Configurator

Customer Reviews

Terrible app

Honestly, you’d think that if Apple designs an app it would be good. That is where you are wrong. I have had this app for months, and still can not figure out how to get it to do simple things. I have been to the Apple store, and on with numerous Customer Service representatives, and still nobody can fix this app. As for right now, I am looking into other (better designed) options to manage my organizations devices. Until the app is fixed, I refuse to use it. Again, extremely disapointed with Apple.

so this comes with no docs and will randomly stop working...

Software that is required for enterprise deployments of Apple’s hardware and comes with virtually zero documentation!? This is one fantastic product! Oh and also, 1.6 just stopped activating iphones for me… But that’s okay… I’ll just download this 5.6GB update for my virtualized MacOS installation, wait several hours, then install the latest version of Configurator and hope that it starts working again! This is the only thing in life that makes sense. Thank you, Apple.
