iOS 6 includes a new feature that lets parents lock the iPad to a single app so kids can’t open other apps, post to Facebook, or delete apps from iPad.
iPad is a popular tablet given to kids for reading books, exploring virtual worlds, or just watching a show on Netflix, but it’s easy for kids to get into apps they shouldn’t or start uninstalling apps from iPad without the controls in place. .
The new iOS 6 software update includes Guided Access mode, which locks the iPad into a single app and allows certain areas of the screen or other features to be blocked while the iPad is locked. This can also be called Kids Mode for iPad.
