Revises iTunes Terms and Conditions to Allow Eduional iTunes Accounts for Children Under 13

on Thursday altered its iTunes Terms and Conditions to permit children under the age of 13 to operate individual iTunes accounts crted at the request of an "approved eduional institution," reportsMacworld.

Previously, restricted iTunes accounts to children aged 13 or older, but the companyannouncedit would be changing its policy with the relse of iOS 7.
These App and Book Services are only available for individuals aged 13 yrs or older, unless you are under 13 yrs old and your ID was provided to you as a result of a request by an approved eduional institution. If you are 13 or older but under the age of 18, you should review this Agreement with your parent or guardian to make sure that you and your parent or guardian understand it.With 's new eduional policies, schools will have a program to facilitate obtaining "verifiable parental consent for personal IDs for students under age 13." In addition, also plans to introduce better tools for tchers.

iOS 7, which is expected to be relsed to the public in the fall,offersnewMobile Device Management optionsallowing tchers to set up managed apps, configure accessibility options, and restrict changes to accounts. Tchers will be able to lock student iPads to a particular app as well, to ensure that students are "on the same activity at the same time."

The new operating system will also bring an App Store Volume Purchase Program designed to allow eduional institutions to assign apps to users while maintaining ownership and control over app s.

's policy shift comes as the company continues its push for iPads in eduional institutions. has been involved in several large dls in recent months and won a$30 million contractfrom the L.A. Unified School District in June that will see the district purchasing iPads for every student in its 47 schools. also met with the Turkish President rlier this yr about apotential $4.5 billiondl that would provide Turkish schoolchildren with as many as 15 million tablets.
