How can I make an iPhone kid-friendly?

If you’re looking to make an iPhone more kid-friendly, this is possible with the use of parental controls. They allow parents to restrict, block or limit specific apps and features on your iPhone.

To Turn on Restrictions

  1. Tap Settings > Screen Time> Use Screen Time Password.  
  2. Enter the passcode that you want to use.  Make sure that this is different from the one that you use to unlock the phone.  It will ask you to confirm this code.  
  3. Above the Screen Time Password you will see a list of options.  Click on Content & Privacy Restrictions.  
  4. To edit what content that the user can access, tap the slider at the top of the page where it says Content & Privacy Restrictions.  
  5. Now you will enter the Screen Time Password that you set up on the last page.  
  6. From this page you can choose what features and content that you want to restrict by clicking on the the options from the list.  
  7. Once you have selected the options that you want to restrict you can exit this menu by hitting the arrow in the top left corner.  
  8. To make changes to these Settings or to turn off restrictions you will need to enter your Screen Time Passcode again.  

When you have Restrictions on, you might not see certain apps, features, or services. If an app or feature is on or if there's a check mark next to it, anyone using the phone can use that app or feature. Otherwise, no one can use that app or feature on the phone.

To see a list of apps and features that you can restrict, go to Settings > General > Screen Time > Content & Privacy Restrictions.
