Parent controls and restrictions

Parents will need to set up the device with their own iTunes account to be able to access school texts and resources. This also allows you to set restrictions and parental controls.

Data and power use

Know your data limits for home Wi-Fi or mobile networks. If a monthly data limit is only 2GB, this may be used up quickly during large downloads.

All school Apps and iBooks have the file size next to them in the download list.

Security

For maximum security, ensure:

  • the password or network key protection is enabled on home and mobile Wi-Fi networks
  • privacy and parental restrictions are password protected
  • the passcode is set so others may not access it.​​​
