Apple has released Configurator 2.8.1, the latest version of the Mac utility that schools and businesses can use to manage and deploy software to multiple iOS and tvOS devices. The update now requires macOS 10.14 Mojave, and it adds a bevy of iOS payload settings for Restrictions, providing control over proximity-based password sharing requests, password sharing and autofill, forcing automatic date and time, and the option to disable the eSIM capability of the new iPhone XR, XS, and XS Max. Other new payload settings offer additional S/MIME-related options, allow grouped notifications, and let Exchange accounts use OAuth for authentication. (Free, 64.5 MB, release notes, 10.14+)
