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.

iPhone Screen Organizer
I tried the iOS 14 screen organization tools and decided I would prefer to orgainize my screen myself again, but iOS 14's auto reorganizing had already done its damage and I found that the defunct iTunes' functionality was not replaced by the Finder. So I had to go on a Google search (the irony) to figure out how to reorganize my iPhone homescreens (if you have ever tried to do it on the phone itself you know it is a lesson in futility). Configurator 2 works ok once you learn its quirks. To move an app from one folder to another you need to double click the folder, click on the app you want to move, and drag it near the x in the upper left corner of the box for a couple of seconds, at which point the app will be released from the folder and you can relocate it. Also, you should click the x to close modified folders, not the apply button, and the folder will save its modified state. Clicking apply will take you out of the homescreen editor completely which is useful only if you are completely done editing. It took a lot of fidgeting to learn those issues.
Just doesn't work
I downloaded this app for the same reason a lot of people download it; because Apple has given us no reasonable solution for managing the layout of app screens on iOS. For me it just flat-out doesn't work. It says it worked, but it doesn't make any changes to my device. And if I ask it what the configuration on the device is now, it reports the original unmodified configuration.
I assume all this is because I'm running Mojave.
I spent 45 minutes trying to get my iPhone to rearrange the apps, but it's hopeless if you have very many folders, and also hopeless if you don't and have them on screens instead. iOS randomly deletes empty pages you laboriously create. And you are stressed the whole time because you know if you fail to do anything for a moment it will time out and delete all the empty space you manually created. For a premium company, this is a subpar experience.
I realize this app is intended for people who are doing mobile device management. But irrespective it should work.
Horrible App - Can't Believe this comes from Apple!
Downloaded it today so I could reorganize my home screens since it's so incredibly hard to do ON your phone (that's another horrible attribute from Apple that makes you scratch your head and wonder if they even use their own devices). This app doesn't work on my Mac very well at all; the screens don't size correctly, and you can't see all the sub-folder home screens, and you can't move apps from one sub-folder home screen to another if that screen is full (it doesn't move bump them over like it does on your iPhone)... THEN, once I spend about 20 minutes reoganizing them, and I go to "apply" the changes, the App crashes. I'm using the app on my iMac to manage my iPhone, and you'd think these things would work together beautifully -- nope -- trash. Glad I didn't pay for it, but you do get what you pay for, soo... my advice is to not bother with this garbage app.
