No more Safari on my iPhone!

23 Jan

imageI love my iPhone.
I can do so much stuff with it: working, playing, writing my blog, … I help my friends and contacts with its use, choosing the right apps that will answer their needs but sometimes all goes very wrong.

And it did for my friend who didn’t have Safari installed on her brand new out-of-the-box iPhone 5S and this was weird, very weird!
Because Safari, Music, FaceTime, iTunes Store, in-app purchase, Siri, AirDrop are all built-in whatever-you-do apps that are always installed on your iPhones, iPad.

We went to the Mothership, also called AppleStore, and discussed this with genius Daniel who introduced us to the Restriction menu.

The Restriction menu is an option you can active and disable by a code to select the built-in apps you want to use or not.

Let’s say you are offering an iPhone to your child and don’t want him/her to buy in-app purchases. You can turn it off and no more pop ins during games asking if you want to buy an extra pack …
All you have to do is create a 4 digits code (that you have to remember) to trigger the option or not.

Now, like us, you know how to solve this and Safari is back on the phone!

    With all the tweaking and personalization do you of your devices, I’d be very curious to see what you would make of an android.
