Two significant shareholders urged Apple in an open letter a few days ago to take the lead on improving parental controls in smartphone and tablets. Apple already includes such tools in iOS, which allow parents to manage what their children can’t and can’t do on iPhones and iPads. The two organizations, however, said these settings offer an “all or nothing” approach, and Apple should improve them in future updates. Apple’s lead would be followed by other companies, the shareholders said.
Apple already responded to the letter, reaffirming the idea that it has parental controls built into iOS. The company also said it’ll improve iOS parental controls in future updates.
