I have two different schools ask me for advice this week about what needs to be done to limit people from downloading apps on their iPads so that children and parents can’t add rubbish games on them. So here comes a blog post to show you how I have advised them.
First of all go to your settings
Then click on GENERAL and then RESTRICTIONS.
You will be prompted to put in a security code. WRITE THIS NUMBER DOWN because you may want to change it and you will need the code to change it at a later date.
Then slide INSTALLING APPS, DELETING APPS and IN APP PURCHASE to off.
While you are there it would be good to change Music and Podcasts to CLEAN. Then push the HOME button and you are done. Children will no longer be able to accidentally delete app and time wasting apps can’t be added.
I can highly recommend Adam Brice’s presentation on further settings that you may like to explore.
