Apple Configurator: Preserving user-installed apps when updating settings on an assigned device

Learn how to preserve apps installed by a user who has checked out a device that is supervised by Apple Configurator.

By default, whenever you connect a supervised device to Apple Configurator, any apps which were installed on that device by a user will be deleted.

With Apple Configurator v1.1 or later, you can change this setting in Preferences, under the Apple Configurator menu.
