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 > General > Restrictions.
  2. Scroll down and tap Restrictions, then tap Enable Restrictions.
  3. Create a Restrictions passcode. You need your Restrictions passcode to change your settings or to turn off Restrictions.

When you have Restrictions on, you might not see certain apps, features, or services.

To see a list of apps and features that you can restrict, go to Settings > General > Restrictions. To turn restrictions on or off, tap the slider next to the app or feature.

If an app or feature is on or if there's a check mark next to it, anyone using your phone can use that app or feature. Otherwise, no one can use that app or feature on your phone.
