Hi,

I am working in a school which have 600 New Ipads (3) and I need to push some udates for the Apps every month and the only way to do that so far is to manually goes to each IPad 3 and select all updates in order to do this process every month.

Would you know a tool that we could use in conjunction with Profile Manager in order to update our school Apps? We have a IOS Lion Server and we are using Profile Manager that comes with it in order to manage the IPads. A profile Manager is a sort of MDM tool.

Well with OS X Server you can't do it.
Even with OS X Mountain Lion, it's not possible to give OTA updates from your SUS to the iOS devices.

But there are 2 things that you can do. The first is to bug a MDM tool.

And the second is described in the following article. But the easy part is to buy a MDM tool.
