On iPhone and iPads, you may have found that your young kids will often accidentally leave an app and get stuck. This is frustrating for both you and your child. But what can you do about it?
First of all, the reason this is happening is that Apple has added many gestures over the years to help make the iPhone easier to use for adults. But many of the gestures that involve swiping from the edges of the screen are often accidentally trigger by a young kid. In our experience, the following are some of the most challenging for kids.
So how do you fix this issue? There is good news! Apple has created a feature called “Guided Access” that allow you to lock your child into the app that you want your child to use. This feature will also disable these gestures, so there is no chance your child will accidentally leave the app!
To enable Guided Access, just follow the instructions from Apple here. Enjoy! https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202612
