Following Apple’s iPad event, the company has released an app name App Configurator, which makes it easy for anyone to mass configure and deploy iPhone, iPad and iPod touch in a school, business or institution. The Configurator is now available for organizations and schools to make updating and resetting devices effortless. The app is free to download for anyone looking to keep track of mass iDevice.
Apple’s Configurator in Apple’s own words:
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 30 devices at a time 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.
