Apple Configurator App 1.0.1 Tweaks Redemption Codes, More

Apple Configurator 1.0.1

Apple updated the Apple Configurator App, its tool first released in March for mass configuration and deployment of iOS devices, to version 1.0.1 Tuesday (via 9to5Mac). The free software is most often used by large organizations and businesses, and allows IT administrators to quickly deploy and update multiple iOS devices at once.

In addition to the usual improvements to “overall stability and performance,” version 1.0.1 brings the following changes and fixes:

  • 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”.

It is available now from the Mac App Store.
