Apple Posts iPhone Enterprise Information and Configuration Utilities

Apple has posted an iPhone Enterprise support page to assist corporate customers looking to take advantage of the new capabilities of the iPhone 2.0 software. The page includes a link to a detailed Enterprise Deployment Guide (PDF) providing setup assistance for these enterprise users.

Apple has also released a configuration utility to assist system administrators with creating configuration profiles that will allow users' devices to communicate with their enterprise systems.

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.

Three versions of the configuration utility are available, a standalone OS X application and web-based applications for both Mac and Windows:
- iPhone Configuration Utility 1.0 for Mac OS X (8.77 MB)
- iPhone Configuration Web Utility 1.0 for Mac (2.29 MB)
- iPhone Configuration Web Utility 1.0 for Windows (5.18 MB)
