Is there a way to set all of our Company's ipads to have the same wallpaper and home screen?  We would like to put our apps and shortcuts on the home screen so it is the first thing they see.

    You can provission the devices with Apple Configurator and do this. Apple Configurator will set the lockscreen and then you can load apps and restore the app icon placement and wallpaper with a backup.


    However... They can change any of this and the apps will be tied to the Apple ID you used to install them.

    Thanks for the reply.  Do you know if there is a way tp push this out?  Our iPads are already out in the field, it would be a pain to get them back to me to get the configurator setup on theres

    Not from Configurator. There are other MDM solutions available, including in OS X Server, that can push out changes across a network, but I don't know of any you could set up without having the iPads back in hand for at least a short while.

    With ALL MDM's you can't set the lock screen, restore a backup (icon placement), or set the wallpaper. With some MDM's (not OS X Server and Profile Manager) You can install apps but this require user intervention, it will ask for the user Apple ID and password.


    So they would need to come back and be teathered.
