Apple’s new ‘Families’ page provides a unified collection of tips for parents | iLounge News
Apple has set up a new Families page on its website providing a one-stop collection of tips on all of the parental controls and other options that are available to support parents in helping their kids use their Apple devices safely and responsibly. The new page appears following recent concerns from investors that the company hasn’t been doing enough to protect children from the negative effects of increased device use, and the new Families page emphasis the efforts Apple has put into designing its products with families in mind, noting that the company has “put a lot of thought into helping parents choose what their kids can do with their devices.”
The new page includes sections outlining the tools that are available to let parents know what their kids are doing, highlight the App Store’s carefully curated “Kids” section that highlights apps suitable for children and allows apps to be filtered or even restricted by age range, describes the “Ask to Buy” feature to ensure that only apps explicitly approved by parents can be installed, and ways to block in-app purchases and limit web site access and media content. The page also includes tips on using Find My Friends, Find My iPhone, and iMessage group chats to keep track of where kids are, how to share media content with the entire family, and how to use health and safety features such as Do Not Disturb While Driving and Emergency SOS and Medical Info.

Apple 'Families': You want to do what's best for your family. So do we. | iMore
Apple has put together all its information on parental controls, family sharing, and more into a one-stop web-based information spot.
Recently some groups have been trying to get attention by calling out smartphone use in general and Apple in particular as something not just dangerous but downright harmful. While it's a serious issue — as I discussed with therapist Georgia Dow in a recent episode of VECTOR — it's not and should never be clickbait.
To help make it easier for parents to sift the signal from the noise, Apple has put together a new section of its website devoted to parental controls, family sharing, and other child-related features and technology.

Why Apple bought Texture | iMore
Apple just bought Texture, the all-you-can-read magazine app...
But what does that mean for current Texture users (including on Android) and for Apple News? In the age of fake news, extremist click-bait, bots, and bubbles, will anyone really care about trusted sources and sustainable publishing? And how much does Apple really care, given neither News nor Texture are available in more than half-a-handful of countries?
