Apple today released iPhone Configuration Utility 3.2 for Mac (http://support.apple.com/kb/DL851) and Windows (http://support.apple.com/kb/DL926), an update to the company's software to allow system administrators to deploy iOS devices in enterprise settings.iPhone Configuration Utility lets you easily create, maintain, encrypt, and install configuration profiles, track and install provisioning profiles and authorized applications, and capture device information including console logs.

Configuration profiles are XML files that contain device security policies, VPN configuration information, Wi-Fi settings, APN settings, Exchange account settings, mail settings, and certificates that permit iPhone and iPod touch to work with your enterprise systems.It is unclear what changes are included in the update.

The Mac version weighs in at 10.17 MB and requires Mac OS X 10.6, while the Windows version weighs in at 35.31 MB and requires Windows 7. Vista SP1, or XP SP3, along with .NET 3.5 SP1.

So, I would imagine the Jailbreak is right around the corner:)

What does that have to do with an enterprise deployment tool?

Sweet! I had no idea this utility existed. There are many executives in our organization who want IOS devices but have been prevented because of the lack of configurable security (like BES for the Blackberry).

We'll have to take a look at this. Could change everything.

Has anyone noticed any changes? I've looked through the app but can't see any.

I'm intrigued by this utility. Would this be useful for someone on a regular data plan or is this made specifically for use with the Enterprise Data Plan?:)

Not really useful for average user, but great to learn more about what iOS is capable of. You can configure damn near anything using ICU.

Is there a way within the iPhone Configuration Utility to prevent a user from going to Settings --> General --> Reset and clicking Erase All Content & Settings.

With my current settings a clever user is able to reset the device this way and remove the profile.

^ Hmmm. VERY INTERESTING feature! This I'm beginning to like.
So who wants to trade their IP4 for a Bold 9780 ;). But seriously, who does?

You do realize that if your business is running Exchange 2003 an add-on allows some security; while 2007/2010 the Exchange Management Console would give some security directly.

This offers MUCH more control - even specifying which intranet resources are available. This is getting better & better. I'd like to see iPhone Calendar/Tasks become a little more powerful, emails to be flagged with reminders (if here already then I'm seriously considering IP4).

With so numerous choices out there it is challenging to read what is marketing hype, what is call
loyalty, and what is unqualified lies. Assault manufacturers are constantly disagreeable to one up one other. Time capitalism can actuation prices downwards, it also can ply entity to dishonest claims near products.

Is there a way to uninstal this software or is it going to be something that is constantly being pushed down from the server?

Does anyone have real world time using this? What I am concerned about is... What tye of things can be limited? I know the enterprise settings for the Blackberry can be configured to limit everything from calander usage to email storage capacity.

Thanks in advance for any input.
