How to create an Apple ID for kids. We divide gadgets in the family into adults and children

Many owners of Apple devices sooner or later begin to give out gadgets to children. There is a need to create a separate children’s record in order to use it on children’s devices.

Starting from iOS 7 Cupertino allows creating child accounts for users under 13-14 years old (depending on the country) in order to conveniently distinguish between data on different gadgets.

Now let’s figure out why you need to create a separate account for the child and how to do it correctly.

Why create a child account

Firstlyso you will definitely be sure that your data, contacts, photos and other content will not get on the children’s device. Many standard and third-party applications sync files to another gadget by default immediately after installation. You won’t even know if a child downloads an app and starts accessing your data.

Secondlyin the child account you can set up your own content blocking rules, restrictions and age norms. When using two gadgets on the same Apple ID account, this will be problematic. Either you have to leave something open for the child, or close something to yourself.

Thirdlyyou can separate yours and children’s progress in games, recommendations in music and video streaming, data in iCloud and other services used.

Fourththe whole family will be able to fully enjoy the services iMessage and FaceTime without duplication of calls on different accounts.

How to create a child’s Apple ID account

This can be done only if you have a full-fledged (adult) account, which is confirmed by one of the methods. The parent account must have a bank card or a valid payment method linked to it, a driver’s license or passport uploaded in the app Wallet (for countries that support this option).

1. Set up Family Sharing to add and group multiple Apple IDs. You can do this according to our instructions.

2. On any of your gadgets, go to Settings – Family and select Add a family member.

3. Select an item Create an account for a child.

4. Enter the child’s first name, last name, and date of birth. Please note that the date cannot be changed later.

6. Accept the user agreement.

7. Enter an email address to use as your Apple ID. If your child doesn’t have their own email, you can create a free iCloud mail entry to use as an ID.

8. Follow the instructions to complete the record registration process.
