I am a social studies middle school teacher. I use iPads on a daily basis to deliver instruction to my students. The iOS 7 update includes iTunes Radio in the Music app. Unfortunately, I am unable to restrict or disable iTunes Radio from my students.


It is ironic that I can restrict Safari and the camera from my students, but they have unfettered access to streaming radio.


Has anyone found a solution to this issue?


Thank you!

iPad 2, iOS 7.0.3

    You may need to talk with your IT dept to help you out.

    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! 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.

    Thank you, that is a good temporary fix for my family.  Might not work if the child signs on with their own apple ID, though.

    The article you mention is only for Windows OS.

    But it had links to Mac OS info...

    -> For documentation on administrative management of iTunes Control Features in OS X, please read article HT2653 and HT3490.

    you also have to restrict changes to accounts else they can log in with another account.  GO to (Settings, General, Restrictions, Accounts, dont allow changes)
