‘Apple for Kids’ Support Portal Launches To Help You Setup Apple Devices For Kids Easily
Apple has shared a new support page that’s designed to help parents get kids set up with their devices in the correct way.
Dubbed ‘Apple for Kids‘, the new page includes information such as how to set up family sharing as well as what to do if a child forgets their passcode.
Throughout the page parents will be shown how to set limits and monitor usage via Screen Time, while the Find My app also gets a mention for those who need to locate a missing device.
Turn on Find My, and if your child’s device goes missing, you can see it on a map and play a sound to help you find it.
It’s also notable that Apple is keen to make sure parents don’t have to deal with unknown charges via the App Store, with one section showing them how to disable in-app purchases on the devices owned by their kids.
You can keep your kids from making unintentional or unauthorized purchases from the App Store, including in-app purchases and subscriptions.
The full support page is a great addition and gives parents the knowledge they need to make sure they remain in control. Often kids known more about these devices and mechanisms than their parents and this page helps to redress that balance.
