Hello,
I just updated my son's iPad mini to iOS7. At some point it asked me for a pin#, which I supplied. I did not realize that the pin would be used to unlock the device.


I would like to remove this, as my son is 3 and was able to open the iPad himself and navigate to the apps he likes. Having a pin on this keeps him from doing this, and he will get upset when he can't get to his apps.


Anyone know how to disable the pin-code?


Thanks

Thanks I will try that. Although I looked last night and don't exactly remember seeing that setting... probably just me in my tired stupor.

apparently many ppl missed the "skip this step" when setting up, I have had many ppl near me ask me this already
