Children can’t stop playing with their phones? You may need to make good use of a child’s Apple ID

Make use of a child's Apple ID to address excessive phone use

【Phoneauto News】Summer vacation is a happy time for children, but for some parents, it can be a nightmare. Many parents worry that their children will not be able to put down their phones during the summer vacation, and they are also concerned that their children will randomly purchase paid software or games after getting addicted to gaming.

If you are an Apple user, you may consider preparing a special “Child Apple ID” for your child. It is an independent Apple ID belonging to the child, and parents can monitor in real-time all the applications downloaded by their children. They can also control the access time of the applications through “Screen Time”.

Setting up a Child Apple ID

The method of adding a child account is also simple. Just select “Family Sharing” in “Settings”, then click the “Add Member” button and select “Create a Child Account”. After that, enter the child’s name and date of birth, and you can create the “Child Apple ID”. Of course, you can also learn more detailed methods of creating it on Apple’s official technical support page.

After setting up the Child Apple ID, parents may also use the “Content & Privacy Restrictions” in “Screen Time” to fully control the device. You can block or restrict specific apps and functions on your child’s device. You can also restrict various settings related to content not suitable for children, purchases, downloads, and privacy on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

In fact, the “Content & Privacy Restrictions” feature in Screen Time is quite powerful. You can not only restrict the apps purchased by children and limit the time they spend on a certain app, but also block their access to various content. If you need more information, you can learn more detailed information on Apple’s official technical support page.

In addition, family members can also share purchased content. For example, when you purchase iCloud with large storage capacity, Apple Music, etc., you can set it to be shared with your children.

Overall, the Child Apple ID is a more comprehensive solution. It prevents children from becoming addicted to games and making impulsive purchases at the system level, and it can also help cultivate good usage habits for children. Of course, communication and companionship from parents are equally important for children. Understanding their habits of using electronic devices can help parents better understand their children.
