Apple has introduced a new website called “Apple for Kids”, which educates parents on how they can use the Family Setup, and what to do if the child forgets the password and more. The new website summarises all of its support information about the ways through which parents can help their children using Apple devices. It also proves to be a single point of reference for families to “Get your child set up”.
In the new “Apple for Kids” website, you can find guides on setting up and fixing common problems or putting limits on a child's use of iDevices. As mentioned in the new guide, “To use Family Sharing each person needs their own Apple ID. As the family organizer, you can create Apple IDs for your children, and add existing Apple IDs for other family members."
For those who are above the age of 13, they can get a step-by-step guide on how they can enter or update the birth date on their Apple ID. The website says that "If your child is under 13, you will need to contact Apple Support to update your child's birth date."
On the website, there is also a section regarding what to do if your child forgets the passcode and also, if they buy something by accident.
In addition, there is a section called Keep track of your child's activities. Here, Apple details how to set up “Ask to Buy” so that parents can always approve of any purchase made by the child. Besides explaining how to use the Apple Cash Family, the site also talks about the screen time limit, how you can set it and how to restrict access to content on your child's device.
Although none of the information mentioned in the “Apple for Kids” website is new, it surely acts as a one stop webpage for all the parents to get started with their children's iProducts.
