Apple has added a new 'Families' section to its website that touts useful features such as parental controls, location tracking, media sharing, and more. The page follows a public 'Think Differently About Kids' campaign led by Apple shareholders that aims to convince the company to offer parents more choices and tools to help them ensure that young consumers are using their products in an optimal manner.

iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, and Apple TV. They’re some of the most powerful tools ever made for learning, exploring, and staying in touch. Parents love them. Kids love them. And we’re continually designing new features to help make sure kids use them in the ways you want.

● Parental Controls
You know your kids better than anyone. That’s why we’ve put a lot of thought into helping parents choose what their kids can do with their devices.

● Location Sharing
Even when everyone in the family is somewhere different — in school, at a friend’s house, driving to practice, shopping at the mall — iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch give parents the information they need to stay cool, calm, and connected.

● Family Sharing
Family Sharing lets you share the things you love with the people you love, so you don’t all have to buy the same stuff over and over. It’s simple to set up, and gives everyone in your family access to shared iCloud storage.

● Health
We’re always working on new ways for our products to be even more helpful. Here are some features everyone in your family can use to stay safe and be well.

● Privacy
So much personal data lives on your family’s devices. That’s why we’ve designed our hardware and software to keep this information private. Touch ID and Face ID, for example, are two of the most advanced security technologies on personal devices. We’ve also made it easy for parents to set privacy controls on their kids’ devices.

● Education
Our commitment to families doesn’t stop at your front door. Apple devices expand what’s possible in the classroom, and apps like Classroom help teachers keep students on track. Educators have access to many of the same controls you do. And Apple doesn’t use your kids’ information to create a profile or market to them.
