Apple has released Configurator 1.0.1, the latest version of its mass deployment tool for iOS devices. Originally debuted in March, Configurator enables schools, businesses, and other institutions to configure up to 30 iOS devices at a time, update software, create and restore backups of settings and app data, and more. According to the release notes, version 1.0.1 improves overall stability and performance, and address a number of issues, including those related to the import and installation of .ipa files, redemption codes, note and bookmark deletion, WPA2 passwords, and backup name editing. Apple Configurator 1.0.1 is available now as a free download from the Mac App Store. [via MDN]

I am with Datamation Systems, which provides syncing, charging, security and storage devices for iPads, iPods and other devices in institutional settings. 

One of our staff members just tested Configurator on 32 iPads using one of our DS-IP-49-SYNC hubs and found that it worked well.  (The test was done at a school that also uses our 32-capacity sync-and-charge carts.) 

It appears that the 30 iPad limit is not a function of the Configurator tool but only the number of devices Apple may have tested.

If anyone has any experience with this, we would love to know.
