Apple Configurator 4+
Apple Configurator for iPhone makes it easy to add any iOS device running iOS 16 or later or any Mac with the T2 Security Chip or Apple silicon running macOS Monterey or later to your organization in Apple School Manager, Apple Business Manager, or Apple Business Essentials so that you can take advantage of Automated Device Enrollment.
Once signed into Apple Configurator with your organization Managed Apple ID with the Device Enrollment Manager role, you can provide a network configuration to the device being added by sharing the iPhone’s network configuration or by choosing a configuration profile to install on the device.
To add a device to your organization, bring the iPhone running Apple Configurator near an iPhone or iPad showing the Wi-Fi pane in Setup Assistant or near a Mac showing the Country or Region pane in Setup Assistant and scan the image or manually enter the six-digit PIN. After the device is added to the organization, it appears in an ‘Added by Apple Configurator’ MDM server placeholder in Apple School Manager, Apple Business Manager, or Apple Business Essentials; the Administrator or Device Enrollment Manager can then assign it to an MDM server for Automated Device Enrollment. The status button in Apple Configurator provides a report of devices which have already been added to your organization.
When a device has been assigned and enrolled in this way, it behaves like any other device enrolled using Automated Device Enrollment, including mandatory supervision and MDM enrollment. The only difference is that the user has a 30-day provisional period to remove the device from the organization, supervision, and MDM.

Ratings and Reviews
This app is currently broken. Using iOS 16.x it crashes at launch. I have tried it on iOS 16.0, 16.1 and 16.1.1. I have also tried loading it on an older device, only to find that it requires iOS16 to run!
This is an important management tool for fleet device administrators, and Apple have broken it!
Assign Macs to MDM Servers
The app is simple and does what it does but it would be great if there was an option to assign the newly added device to a specific MDM server. At the moment it requires to log in again on the web before the Mac is restarted. Otherwise enrolment will fail as no MDM server assigned.
Maybe allow to choose a default MDM server to assign automatically?
Also adding multiple ABM accounts would be a nice touch!
Does not open
The app just flashes and then close.
I have reset the iPad and tried with a different account but no luck.
