iPad Tutorial: Guide for How to Configure and Clone Large Numbers of iPads


A few days ago, I posted a method for saving time and bandwidth by downloading an iOS update file once, then using that one downloaded file again and again to update a number of iOS devices such as iPads.

Jennifer Foster, Network Manager for the New Boston Independent School District composed a great guide to using the iPhone Configuration Utility for setting up multiple iPads. I contacted Jennifer and she agreed to allow me to share the file. You can use this utility and her detailed set of directions for creating configuration profiles and cloning multiple iPads, including settings and apps. Here’s the Dropbox link.
