TidBITS Watchlist: Notable Software Updates for 23 September 2013

Apple Configurator 1.4 -- Apple has released Configurator 1.4, the essential tool for schools and businesses to manage and deploy software to multiple iOS devices. The update supports the latest features (and restrictions) of the just-released iOS 7, including AirDrop. It enables configuration of the Web content filter, AirPlay mirroring destinations and passwords, AirPrint printers, the Limit Ad Tracking setting, font installation, and Managed Open In, and it allows connecting supervised devices to any Mac and control over whether Control Center and Notification Center display on the Lock screen. Apple Configurator 1.4 also brings an improved user interface for installing a single profile on unsupervised devices, plus the capability to complete the Apple TV setup assistant and enroll it into Mobile Device Management (MDM) without having to use the remote.
