Apple Configurator Tip For Not Updating Supervised Devices To Latest iOS

New Contributor III

This isn't exactly JAMF/Casper related, but I think it might be helpful to many of you today.

With the release of iOS 7, the default behavior of Configurator is to update any supervised device to the latest version of iOS when you prepare it. That's troublesome for organizations which want to have a consistent deployment without mixed versions of iOS.

I called AppleCare Enterprise Configurator Support and it turns out there is a pretty simple workaround.
I made a short video to describe/demonstrate the process.

Hopefully that helps some of you!

Nice! Got it to work again with Apple Configurator 1.2, but this is much better! Thanks for posting!

New Contributor III is the official kBase article on this procedure, if anyone wants it.
