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 device enrollment and purchasing in Apple Business Manager or Apple School Manager 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.
This used to be in iTunes ...yes everyone complains. I've tried multiple times to get it to reconfigure the home screen on my iPad Pro or iPhone X ...nada. Nothing changes. Running Catalina. ––Would someone at Apple PLEEEEEase fix this.
Worthless for modifying iPhone home screen. Don't know why Apple removed it from iTunes.
Good thing I read the reviews first before I spent all that time to rearrange my screen layout. I tried with just one and then hit apply. Like all other users said, it doesn't work, does not apply the changes.
Don't spend your time arranging your iPhone's apps using this program. You click "Apply" and it's like everything you did dissappears.
I was excited to read about this, as I blew up my careful folder organization when I stupidly Reset Home Screen Layout (Settings). It looks good. You open the app on your computer, connect the iOS device to it, and use the Action > Modify > Home Screen Layout. You start dragging apps around as you'd like them to be re-organized. Hit Apply. Re-open and NOTHING CHANGES.
Rearranging apps doesnt work... theres no error. It just doesnt work.
Thank the gods I read the reviews before spending an hour with this. I'm able to connect, see phone logs, etc, however, when organizing home screens, the appears to work but won't apply the changes to the phone. This is obviously super annoying, but since I read some previous reviews I only wasted a couple minutes. This app has a lot of potential. The interface is a million times better than the iTunes abomination. However, it ain't working, so there's not much more to say until Apple fixes this broken app.
This app does not work to rearrange home screens. Such a waste of time.
Grabbed this so I could organize my home screens more easily than on the iPhone. To its credit, Configurator is at least easier to use than the old home screen management in iTunes, but that's a pretty low bar. Interface could be a LOT more user friendly All that really doesn't matter though because, after you spend an hour rearranging your home screen, you click Apply and it DOES NOT WORK! Forums suggest this has been an ongoing problem for over a year at this point, with Apple engineers able to successfully replicate the issue. Why hasn't this been fixed?!?!?
