iOS 16 is making it easier to manage accounts for your kids with a new way to set age-appropriate restrictions for apps, media content, and parental controls.
It’s also going to get easier to set up a child’s iPad. A parent can simply bring their iPhone near a new iPad to take advantage of Quick Start. With just a few taps, the iPad gets set up with all the parental controls already in place.
Screen Time requests from kids will also now be sent via Messages, and a parent can approve them right from there so they’ll be harder to miss.
Lastly, a new Family Checklist will provide helpful tips and reminders like updating settings as kids get older and configuring appropriate Screen Time options.
