Does anyone know where I can download Configurator v1.2.1?  Version 1.2.1 is the previous version of the app. 


I started using Configurator at v1.3. It is very buggy, and I have encountered the same difficulties described by many of the reviewers on the App Store. 


The previous version, v1.2.1, is reportedly more stable. Unfortunately, I have been unable to locate a DMG for Configurator v1.2.1 either from Apple or anywhere else online.

    Unless I've missed something somewhere, you can't. Configurator is only available through the Mac App Store and they always have only the most recent version. Unless you previously downloaded 1.2.1 and kept a backup copy somewhere, 1.3 will be the only version available to you. No one else can give you a copy since it will be tied their App Store accounts.

    I've got 4 Mac Minis

    2 have been upgraded to Apple Configurator 1.3 the other 2 have 1.2 on.

    I'm not a mac person, only have these for enrolling ipads, where can do you find the program?

    ~/Library/Containers/ .apple.configurator/Previous Data/ doesn't exist.


    How can I find the file?


    Once found, don't mind putting it on a ftp server for you to pickup

    Adam and nsdjoey, I wish your post had have stayed as I have run out of options! 


    There are now many others that are having a terrible time with the latest Configurator! I wish I'd known not to update such an awful version - it's now wiped out any possibility of getting our many ipads into classrooms at all for while. 10 classrooms are going to have to ditch all programmed work for their upcoming units. It's also cost many many hours personally to try to fix this mess! We have no Tech's -  I'm just the teacher who's the most tech savvy whose in charge of ipads so this probem with configurator is SO frustrating. If anyone could write to say hello, and quietly point me to where I could get the previous version.....that would be fantastic!!


    For a company so intent on ensuring quality, they have failed massively with this latest Configurator that crashes instantly on opening EVERY TIME. Who did the testing and quality control?? It is in urgent need of a FIX. In the meantime, our whole program has come to a grinding halt.


    WHy on Earth can't they offer the previous version INSTANTLY so we can at least carry on while they get around to fixing this piece of rubbish? I see the new version is still on Apps store, even though they know by now it is rubbish.

    Not a happy chappy!

    You'll have to delete ~/Library/Containers/ (probably back it up first) or else the downgraded app won't open, but unfortunately you'll probably lose your supervised devices.
