Apple releases Apple Configurator 1.0.1

Apple has released Apple Configurator 1.0.1 which is a recommended update for all Apple Configurator users.

This update improves overall stability and performance and addresses a number of issues, including the following:

• Enterprise apps packaged as .ipa files are imported and installed correctly.
• Redemption codes for apps that contain a comma in their title can now be imported.
• A redemption code may be reused to install an app on another device if the original device is unsupervised and erased by Apple Configurator, or if the app’s installation did not complete on the original device.
• The redemption code used to purchase an app in iTunes may also be used to install the app on one device with Apple Configurator.
• The number of redemption codes remaining for an app is now displayed correctly.
• Notes and bookmarks entered into iBooks and iTunes U are deleted when a backup is restored to a supervised device.
• The WPA2 password is saved when editing a Wi-Fi profile payload.
• The name of a stored backup is saved when edited.
• The storage capacity of an 8 GB iPod touch is now displayed correctly.
• The “Erase all contents and settings” checkbox on the Prepare pane has been relabeled “Erase before installing.”

The Apple Configurator 1.0.1 update is available from the Mac App Store.


  1. Two things.

    First, I gotta say that looking at this list, it appears to me that Apple released a half-assed, half-baked version 1.0. Very un-Apple-like.

    Second, if more organizations are going to adopt iPads, they’re going to need tools like this instead of the expensive ones provided by third parties, such as Casper. School districts, for example, have a hard time providing iPads to students let alone buying expensive management software on top of that. Configurator seems like a good start.

    Dan, I’d like to see an answer to your query, too. I suspect that 30 is the limit, though.
