Apple has released an app called Configurator to help large institutions "mass-configure and deploy" products.

"Three simple workflows let you prepare new iOS devices for immediate distribution, supervise devices that need to maintain a standard configuration, and assign devices to users. Quickly update 30 devices at a time to the latest version of iOS, configure settings, and install apps and data for your students, employees, or patrons," according to Apple.

Harrison Weber, design editor at TheNextWeb.com, tells In Depth with Francis Rose how agencies can effectively use the Configurator.
