We only use Apple Configurator to drop a wifi profile on then we enroll the ios device using our MDM package.

On 1.2 this worked great, now in 1.3 only can do this if we put configurator in to supervisor mode, which we don;t want.


How can I put the Wifi policy on to multiple devices connected to the back without using supervisor mode?

    This functionality may have been removed in the much reviled update from 1.2.1 to 1.3.  The user -=Someone=- reported the exact same problem on the App Store review board.  The only solution I've seen is to foregoe the update. 


    If you've already updated, you will probably need to roll back to your previous version of Configurator in order to retore the desired functionality. Since the App Store does not support previous versions, you will have to restore your Configurator application and its related data from a personal backup.  Based on what I've read, there are two items to restore from backup:


    (1) The Configurator application file, located in [your hard drive]/Applications/

    (2) The Configurator data folder, located in [your hard drive]/Users/[your user name]/Library/Containers/


    Note that your Library folder might be hidden. See https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4380014?start=0&tstart=0 for instructions on how to unhide your Library.


    Good luck!

    Hi gi5ghost,


    Looks like the option is back with v1.3.1: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5833

    Multiple devices can now be handled, but it still only seems possible to install one profile at a time. Not very helpful if you want to (for example) install a wifi profile, then Trust and Enrolment profiles for Profile Manager!!
