Next week my 9yo starts Grade 4, and as per his school, required an iPad capable of running the latest iOS, and ideally with at least 32GB of storage. He also requires his own Apple ID, that he is not allowed to know the password for.
As such, we’ve just had an expedition to Chadstone, and come home with an iPad Air 2, 32GB Space Grey ($555 @ Myer), with a Griffin Survivor Slim case ($82 JBHiFi).
When going to set up the Apple ID, I noted the option for linking devices as a “family”, and that you can have accounts for children provided they are supervised by an adult via the family setup. I was going to use that option, however - what exactly will be blocked off when using his age? One of the apps the school has asked to be installed they have noted as being for 12+… So - will iTunes block him from downloading that app if we provide his real age??
