Now, with i OS 7, Apple has added website content filtering. (These screenshots are from an i Pad mini, but the instructions should work for any i OS 7 device) 1. The options are: All Websites – no restrictions in place, your child can visit any website. Limit Adult Content–limits access to “many adult websites automatically”.
Blocking contacts means there is a solution to the problem of group i Messages.
You may want to upgrade your child’s devices just for these features! As you may know Apple does offer some level of parental control for i Pods, i Phones and i Pads through Restriction settings.
Used to be, you could either allow the Safari web browser or restrict it completely.
In order to allow access to only sites, you had to install a kid-safe browser, and restrict Safari completely.
Also searching for “sexy pictures” with a Google search was blocked.
Specific Websites Only – this setting will only allow websites you specify.
You start with a suggested list of child friendly sites such as Discovery Kids, PBS Kids, and a few others.
Last week was the much ballyhooed debut of the i Phone 5S and 5C along with i OS 7.
i OS is the Apple operating system for mobile devices.
While many folks are commenting on the new design (shown here), there are at least two new features that parents should be aware of.
First, you can now restrict Safari from showing adult content, and second, you can block contacts.
