    I have a buddy who is a really great guy, fantastic photographer and talented artist....Okay, thats the good part.

    He is USELESS at looking after his Mac, ipadf and iPhone...And when I say useless I mean he trashes them all on a regular basis, leaving me to fix stuff.

    Today I'm going to upgrade his iPad and phone, and iTunes and iCloud stuff, my question is.....What's the best way to leave the settings on his phone and iPad (DOn't worry about syncing, I'm going to set it up for wifi and password it to me) so that he can't trash stuff so easily?

    He doesn't do it on purpose, just doesn't understand. Sensible ideas please!

    You can use the parental controls, like the one to prevent deleting stuff and etc.

    If my dad had a smartphone, I'd do it and he's almost 83!!!

    It might Be The Way

    To go, but I'll tell him what I've done and why. He knows he messes stuff up, so if I tell him I've done it stop him from bricking his phone or iPad, he should be okay!

    83? Thats cool that he's using the technology. My Mom has trouble with a can opener :)
