exactly, not everybody can upgrade to iOS 7.1 to have the changes to the app store if this is the case. they would have to push out an update for older devices. i call BS on this delaying the release of iOS 7.1.

OK, so it sounds like all Apple need to do is to turn this on by default?

Wouldn't mind Apple delaying iOS 7.1 another month.

Is it really that big?

You never had an IOS device running IOS 7, have you ?

You can currently disable in app purchases so it should not be an issue with a 2 year old.

How credible is the guy who said "any day now". It'd be funny if he changed everyone's expectation to next week while it releases end of March. I'm so impatient now because of those words - damn you guy with "apparent sources"!

3. Work 25 hours a day to get this in-app stuff implemented before the festival, release 7.1 with IAP changes
I like option number 2. Seems reasonable

7.1? Nah it's pretty small. I don't mind just skipping it altogether and just waiting till June for iOS 8, what do you say?

I say 'no.' Although I don't have as many crashes as others, it's still not right.

It's pretty significant for a .1 update. Noticeable UI improvements, etc.

Exactly, what happened to cuddly toys and actually playing with your infant child rather than sitting them in front of a digital baby sitter unsupervised for hours on end. iPhones and iPads are not suitable for children this age. Maybe they should have suitable for 8+ on the box for people who seem to have no clue.

I have a 7 year old daughter, she regularly plays with my iPhone and iPad, the iPad much more than me. Almost every app/game on the iPad is hers and there's roughly 30+ games on there for her.

I made sure NOTHING could be purchased without a password, in app or not.

They could of course, same as they could with the Firewall on OSX but seriously, people should take some of the responsibiltiy and read at least some of the manual. I make a point of having a flick through as a minimum.

To me I find this as annoying as those people that buy a brand new car and a few months later don't know here the spare wheel or towing/jacking points are.
RTFM people!!!

So many pretend parents have so much "useful" advice for actual parents (and those who are actual parents with such advice should really know better about judging the parenting of others, and if they don't, then they really haven't fully learned what it is to be a parent just yet). This thread is going places.

This is exactly what the Guided Access functionality is for, which is on any iOS 6 or 7 device. It prevents the user from leaving the app without entering a password.

What happened to hotwheels, GIjoe, TV, Nintendo, etc.
Here they are:
HotWheels
GIjoe
TV
Nintendo

For those that don't want to click the links, they are iPad apps of all of his examples.

Nothing to do with children. Just read some of the manual, doesn't have to be all of it.

Couldn't this just be a parental setting in preferences, that way you could enable or disable password protected in-app purchases at will.

But it just works?

Kidding aside. I don't own the latest generation of iPhone. But does the box come with anything that indicates where they can get an instruction manual and/or that they should get the instruction manual? Does the initial setup take you or ask you if you want to get the manual?

Serious questions. I agree that people should read the manual - but perhaps Apple could make it even "easier" to attain then just hosting it and having people go look for it.

I also agree that perhaps, just perhaps, these "controversial" settings should be set to a default which is tighter on security so that you have to opt IN for in-app purchases vs opting out.
