Initializing link download.....
Plug your iPads into your sync centre and open Apple Configurator 2
Select all the iPads
And click on the prepare button at the top centre
Leave configuration as Manual and click Next
For server leave it as Do Not enroll in MDM and Click next
For Supervision choose Supervise devices, and Allow devices to pair with other computers, then Click Next
Choose your organization name from the drop down
If you haven’t created one it will prompt you to add details about your establishment.
Then Click Next
Then you need to choose which steps to skip on the iPad when you first set it up
By default if you skip them all they will be set to off
So I like to choose Location Services so I can turn it on when I set my iPad up
And Apple ID because it will need it later on so it’s easier to put it in while I am setting the iPad up
When you have finished Click prepare
It might take up to 15 minutes depending on how many iPads you have connected.
When it has finished you will see the home page of the iPads displayed in the view pane.
And that’s it you’re done, now you can apply Blueprints to your supervised devices.
