The first section of Restrictions allows you to enable or disable various apps and features including:
- iTunes Store
- iBook Store
- In-App Purchases
- Installing Apps
- Deleting Apps
- Siri (if available on the device)
- CarPlay (hopefully, your kids aren't driving and playing Dr. Panda)
The next section is called Allowed Content. Choose which country you are in to determine the ratings used. Then you can select the ratings allowed for movies, TV shows, music and podcasts. It is possible to control "explicit" language in music, podcasts or with Siri. You can also prevent Siri from being able to search content from the web. This section allows you to restrict websites to "specific websites only." If websites are restricted, you can determine if the password is required "immediately" or "every 15 minutes" to access non-approved websites.
There is the option to prevent changes to privacy settings for many features such as location services, calendar and reminders. It also allows you to prevent changes to the privacy settings of social media accounts.
Restrictions also covers the Game Center. Disable Multi-player games or Adding Friends in this section.
Nothing can take the place of adult supervision, but these features should help you feel more in control of what your child is able to access on their device. More information on parental controls can be found at the Apple support website.
