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.
The app throws handler communications errors due to a lack of iOS 14 support, so this is useless until Apple updates it.
I tried to delete profiles on my iPhone from a previous employer. I called IT for the company, they were no help, and stated they needed to "escalate" my request. I downloaded this app and it allowed me to delete profiles and the company email within minutes. Worked perfectly for what I needed.
The Actions > Modify > Home Screen Layout feature doesn't load all of the applicatoins, making it impossible to actually organize one's home screen. Last update was four months ago.
When I reorganized my home screen it erased all my widgets and hidden pages. 😭
Were you trying to make a desktop app whose UI for rearranging iOS icons is EVEN MORE frustrating and nonintuitive than the one that the devices themselves are now cursed with? Are you on a mission to make the desktop Music app as unusable as possible, by not only removing useful functionality from it but putting that functionality in a separate app that is even worse? What has happened to a company that used to be the world's model of user experience? Do they even DO user studies anymore to evaluate their user experiences? This is shameful.
Downloaded this to try to reorganize my iPhone apps. I read online that this app is very prone to crashing, but i figured i would try it myself. The other reviewers were right. You can delete apps from a list, but it crashes every time you try to move apps on the desktop. Disappointing that there is really no alternative since iTunes discontinued this feature
The old method of doing this through iTunes was SO much more intuitive. Need to put an app icon between two others? Easy. Need to take something out of a stack? no problem. Want to look at another window without having to move an icon to do it? Done. This has the complete feel of a beta that got shoved into the marketplace before any reasonable testing. The simple fix? Bring back the structure and methodology of how it was done in iTunes. Don't have to do anything complicated, don't have to reinvent the wheel. Just do what had been done before, and please release that soon. This is far more effort for the user than it has to be.
doersnt work - does not respond
The people have spoken and this app absolutely stinks.
I updated to Catalina specifically to run this Configurator 2 app, but it refuses to do anything except beachball or refuse to save/duplicate/move or even quit. I guess all the developers are doin the far more important work of creating new emojis.
