Apple this week updated its Apple Configurator app, which is used to deploy iOS and Mac devices in schools and businesses. The latest version of the tool makes it fully compatible with the new third-generation iPhone SE and fifth-generation iPad Air, as well as the latest versions of iOS and macOS.
With Apple Configurator, organizations such as schools or businesses can easily configure a large number of iOS devices and Macs using a single computer. The app offers options to define settings, apps, and data for students or employees.
Apple Configurator features a flexible, device-centric design that lets you quickly and easily configure one or dozens of devices. Simply select one or more devices at once and perform an action.
With Apple Configurator, you can update software, install apps and configuration profiles, rename and change device wallpaper, export device information and documents, and more. You can also inspect any device to see details like serial number and hardware addresses, installed apps and profiles, and its console log.
Version 2.15.1 of the app makes it compatible with the latest devices and software updates introduced by Apple during the special “Peek Performance” event earlier this month.
Last year, Apple also announced that it was bringing Apple Configurator to the iPhone. However, the iOS app was created to set up a Mac not purchased by an organization in Apple Business Manager or Apple School Manager.
Apple Configurator is available for free on the App Store. The tool requires a Mac running macOS Catalina 10.15.6 or later.
