You can easily create a backup of an iOS device using Apple Configurator. Once you’ve created a backup, it can be restored onto a number of devices. This contains iOS data and data outside of the secure enclave. These backups allow you to restore an iOS device, add apps (not using the backup), set backgrounds, set app locations on the home screen, etc.
To do so, open Apple Configurator and then click on the Prepare icon.
At the Prepare screen, click into the Restore field and then click on the Create Backup button.
At the pop-up menu, select the device you’re backing up (usually there’s only one) and then click on the Create Backup button.
Then choose the location you’d like to place the backup file.
Click Save and the backup starts.
Once the backup is complete, you will have an iosdevicebackup file in the location you saved the file to. This is stored on the iOS device and can then be restored to other devices.
