iPhone Configuration Utility

The iPhone Configuration Utility is free software for Windows and Mac OS X that lets an administrator control how an iOS device works within an enterprise IT network.

With the Apple iPhone Configuration Utility, an IT administrator can create an Extensible Markup Language (XML) file called a configuration profile to govern user access to corporate software applications and data. The iPhone Configuration Utility also allows IT administrators to deploy corporate apps to iOS devices. Apple released the iPhone Configuration Utility in 2008 and has since added additional mobile device management (MDM) features to iOS, such as application program interfaces (APIs) that let administrators deploy, update and remove configuration profiles wirelessly, without requiring physical access to individual iOS devices.
