In Short

Parental Controls, also known as Restrictions, allow you to set what your children can and can't access on an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. With Parental Controls, you can lock out Safari, Camera, FaceTime, Siri, AirDrop, CarPlay, the iTunes, iBooks, Podcasts, or App Stores (including in-app purchases), as well as content by age rating, and the ability to make changes to accounts and other app settings. In other words, they're a way to restrict your children's access to anything and everything you deem inappropriate for them based on their age and sensitivity, and your own best judgement. And they're part of what make iOS devices ideal the ideal computing platform for kids.
