Apple Announces iOS 4.2 with new Parental Control Options

SUREN on November 23, 2010

Please upgrade the software on your device asap to the latest version. The reason is that Apple has added enhanced parental control options that will make it difficult for a user to delete Mobicip. iOS 4.2 includes an option to prevent the deletion of apps installed by the parent or administrator.

To use this new feature, select Settings > General > Restrictions and enter the restrictions passcode. You will see this screen that you had used to disable Safari in the past. On this screen, you will now see an additional option called Deleting Apps highlighted below. Set this to OFF and your child will not be able to delete Mobicip once it has been setup.

In another much sought after enhancement, Apple has added an option to disallow email accounts from being setup. Whether you have setup a child-friendly email service like Zilladog or Zoobuh, or you simply want to turn off email access, this gives you the ability to lock email accounts and not allow your child to setup an alternate email account. Simply scroll down on the same Restrictions screen to setup this option.

We believe that these are valuable additions and that there is enough reason to upgrade your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad to iOS 4.2.
