    There is a new section in the featured part of the iTuness store. A "Parent's Guide to iTunes" tells parents how they can limit their children's use of their idevice. Not sure how new this is or if this has already been covered. Anyway this should help stop children spending £1000's of pounds of their parents money through in app purchases and such (whilst also stopping Apple from giving refunds). :p

    Maybe it's UK only?

    Might well be UK only as most of the stories involving kids spending thousands in the App Store are from the UK lol. Anyway, this hasn't been covered on any news site I didn't believe.

    Nothing for Malaysia as well, although ironically, there's a section called "Apps for Kids" here! ;)

    Yep not in the US. Nothing special here. image.jpg
  9. How this will help, I do not know. What would be better is password verification before every purchase, with the option of two-step verification (confirm via email), which is enabled by default.

    Education is not always greater than action.
