“Apple Configurator” Released To Mass Configure iOS Devices

Apple has released a new free app on the Mac App Store, a utility called “Apple Configurator” to ease the mass configuration process of iOS devices for businesses and schools. Whilst the support page for the app still has to become available, it appears the app will allow those who are looking for a simple deployment solution to set Profiles for iOS devices, update iOS, install apps, and set restrictions. It’s certainly a welcome addition that confirms Apple’s focus in education, and in helping schools manage iOS devices and distribute applications.

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

Apple Configurator is available for free here.
