Apple Configurator makes it easy to deploy iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, and Apple TV devices in your school or business.

Use Apple Configurator 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.

Apple Configurator 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, 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 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 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.

Only for the patient!

Like others here I downloaded the app to re-arrange apps on my iphone because foolishly I thought it must be better than doing it on the phone directly.

As long as one shifts apps between screens or to a new one it actually works ok. Ordering the various screens worked well for me as well, once I found how to do it (it wasn't very clear how initially).

But once I got to re-arranging the apps on one screen I started to get frustrated really quickly. Shifting an app between two others never worked for me, I always ended up with a collection I just didn't want to have.

If you are a very patient person and have plenty time perhaps this app is for you. Maybe I expect to much from a free app but is it too much to ask that an app actually makes your tasks easier?

Does exactly what I needed

Have found trying to organise my iPhone and iPhone screeds without iTunes has been a real pain. I tried using the Finder on my new Mac Mini but that didn't have the facility. Found Apple Configurator and it is a game changer. I have Ventrura on the Mac and an iPhone 7 so was worried about incompatibility but have had no problems at all. The only feature I was really interested was organising the screen and it does this fine. When you click Apply it will go back to the beginning and you have to connect again but using the Actions - Modify - Homescreen Layout, but this is a small irritant! Both my iPad and iPhone screen are sorted!

Modify Home Screen Layout doesn't work

I downloaded this app purely to reorganise my apps on my Home Screen as I find making big changes very time-consuming on the phone itself. The modify home screen layout option appears to work, you can put in all the work to move things around, then when you click "apply" it spins as if it's updating your phone, but doesn absolutely nothing. The apps are exactly where they were before starting. I've tried various ways to get round this. Nothing. Very disappointing because this would be ideal to make this reorganisation quicker and simpler.

And an extra issue - the help document is in Spanish. Even though the app is in English (my default), and I don't even live in a country where Spanish is a national language. Very weird and extremely unhelpful.
