Yesterday, two major Apple investors published an open letter showing a lot of concern about the possible negative impact of the iPhone on children, so they asked for more measures. parental control company on their devices. And it seems that the appeal was successful, since Ma came to the public to comment on the concern, bringing hope to anyone who wants to see this type of system improvement.
According to Wall Street Journal, Apple made a point of reminding investors that it has been concerned with parental control measures since the second generation of the iPhone OS, back in 2008, and that basically everything a child accesses online can now be blocked by parents.
We think deeply about how our products are used and the impact they have on users and the people around them. We take this responsibility very seriously and are committed to meeting and exceeding our customers' expectations, especially when it comes to protecting children.
And to soothe the hearts of concerned parents, the company went so far as to comment that it is "constantly looking for" ways to improve its devices and that it plans to launch new features which will provide those responsible with "even more robust" options to control access for the little ones.
Apple did not reveal what these improvements would be that we will possibly see in the next versions of the system, but some of the requirements present in the open letter from investors would be the possibility of limiting the time of use, improvements in monitoring, among other things.
Now, we can only wait, so it is good to see that Apple is aware of the problem.
