iOS gives you lots of options when it comes to parental controls. One of the most useful features is how well you can restrict access to your personal data on iPhone and iPad. For example, if you don't want a child to be able to accidentally delete your contacts or alter calendar invites without your knowledge, you can easily use restrictions to stop it from happening before it ever does.

How to restrict app installations and deletions with parental controls on your iPhone or iPad

If you let your kids use an iPhone or iPad, or they've got their own, it's a good idea to make sure they're only installing content that is appropriate for their age. Every iPhone and iPad comes with the ability to enable restrictions on what apps can be deleted or installed. Unless they know the restrictions passcode, they'll have to ask permission to install apps from the App Store, and to delete existing ones.

How to restrict in-app purchases with parental controls on iPhone and iPad

Many apps and games in the App Store offer in-app purchases, which let you buy additional content or levels inside the app. The problem with in-app purchases is that they can be quite expensive, especially inside games. There have been several horror stories of parents receiving huge credit card bills due to small children racking up in-app purchases. If you don't ever want to be in the same boat, you can easily disable in-app purchases so your kids can't buy anything inside apps that they don't have permission to purchase in the first place.

Kids projects: Make a vacation travel trailer with iMovie on your iPhone or iPad!

Summer and vacation go together like, well, two of the best things in the world. Parents have time off from work, kids have time off from school, the weather is nice, the sun is shining, and travel beckons. Whether it's a day at a local fun spot, a trip across country, or an adventure half-way around the world, memories will be made. Amazing memories, crazy memories, shared memories. No matter how great a vacation is, however, you can never be there forever, nor can you take everyone you love with you. What you can do is bring the vacation home for you and for them! With your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, not only can you take videos and pictures of those magic travel moments, but you can edit and share them right in iMovie, even right away if you want to. Best of all, for kids (of all ages!), iMovie's trailer templates make it incredibly quick and easy to put together something short, sweet, and fun!

Kids projects: Learn a new language with Duolingo on your iPhone or iPad

We're starting a new series focusing on fun summer — or winter — projects for the whole family. Things you can do on your iPhone, iPad, and/or Mac in ways that are convenient, efficient, and rewarding. This is the first one. I hope you enjoy it!

Summer means the days are long, work gets a break, schools let out, and we have time for some fun in the sun. It also means we have time to expand our horizons, to learn and do new and exciting things. One such thing is learning a new language. How we communicate and how we think are limited only by our command of language, beautiful, lyrical, contextual, nuanced, delicious language. And apps like Duolingo make it easier than ever to learn a new language, to do it from your deck or poolside, from your living room or hotel room, and right on your iPhone and iPad
