Don't seem to find where to set parental control for my childs iPhone. I sync the songs we approve for her but now iOS7 has iTunes Radio which allows her to listen to anything. Where can that be controlled?

 

Thanks for your help.


iPhone 5, iOS 7

    You can enable it to where explicit songs won't be played, but that's about it.

    I am disappointed that we cannot disable iTunes Radio in parental controls!!!!  Excellent Parental Controls are the primary reasons I pay for my kids to have iPhones and recommend them to all of the parents I counsel regarding technology.  I hope apple will be adding iTunes Radio disable ASAP to parental controls.

    I agree.  Up until now iphone has been the only device that allows complete control over things like this with no loopholes.  I too am very dissapointed that there is no parental control or restrictions for itunes radio.  I will be downgrading back to IOS 6.

    You can't downgrade iOS.

    I just figured that out.  There is info out there on how to do it but apparently it doesn't work anymore.  Frustrating.

    I've been racking my brain at this, too!!! However, I found a solution!!! My dilemma is that my child has an iPad mini in which I've been able to: download appropriate apps, music, restrict websites, install safe web browsers, etc. All was well until the latest update last year with the introduction of "iTunes Radio." After going through the trouble of searching online for answers; "more" mysteriously disappeared  from the music app so I cannot hide the "iTunes Radio;" and "Reset All Settings," I found I wasted my time! Instead, go to the "Settings" app and on the left side scroll down and select "iTunes and App Store" AND be sure that you or whoever's Apple ID is on your child's device is SIGNED OUT. Proceed to the "Music" app and you'll find that you NO LONGER have access to "iTunes Radio" because you are NOT signed in! (Hopefully, this will work with the iPhones, too.) I hope this helps many! ;-)

     

    APPLE: Shutting off "EXPLICIT" under "Music and Podcasts" does not cut it if you can still listen to filth... There should be a disable feature for iTunes Radio.
