Apple publishes new 'Families' webpage with parental control tips & tricks

So today in response to all these concerns Apple is launching a new "Families" page to its site.

The new page, which was unveiled on Thursday, is called Families.

The page showcases features including: an Ask To Buy tool that lets parents approve or decline app purchases from their device; an app management feature that lets users automatically block in-app purchases automatically; and the option to limit adult content on kids' devices and restrict browsing to only pre-approved websites.

Parents cannot only prevent their kids from installing new apps, they also have the ability to turn of mobile Safari browser on their iOS powered phone or tablet. In messages, parents can set up a group chat with the entire family and tap on the "i" icon to send their location, see the kids location, and view pictures taken by any member of the family. The aim of the letter was to put pressure on Apple to add parental control features on the Apple iPhone and iPads.

"As one of the most innovative companies in the history of technology, Apple can play a defining role in signaling to the industry that paying special attention to the health and development of the next generation is both good business and the right thing to do", they argued.

The webpage does not reveal what new parental control options Apple is offering.

Apple still has room to grow to catch up to competitors.

Similarly, Microsoft had a Kid's Corner mode for parents to use on their now-defunct Windows Phone, and Google has similarly explored expanding parental controls on Android devices, Axios reported. Parents can add an age restriction in the app store so that their children can download or access only age-appropriate content.
