#Install Apple Configurator

Posted by Charles Edge on July 31st, 2015

Occasionally, when discussing various deployments with Bushel customers, we’ll recommend you use a tool called Apple Configurator for certain tasks. Apple Configurator is a great tool to manage iOS devices. It’s also a pretty decent tool when you need to create profiles for use on Macs. Apple Configurator is easily installed using the Mac App Store.

However you plan on using Apple Configurator, the first step to use the product is to download it for free and install it on an OS X computer. To install Apple Configurator, first open the App Store and search for Apple Configurator. When listed, click on Apple Configurator.

This downloads Apple Configurator to the /Applications directory on your computer. Once installed, open Apple Configurator and click on Prepare to get started. We’ll post some more articles about using Apple Configurator to perform tasks, as we get the product more aligned with Apple Configurator-based workflows. There’s also a series of articles at http://krypted.com/guides/apple-configurator/ to help guide you through the process of getting comfortable with Apple Configurator.
