iOS 6: Have You Turned on Guided Access Yet?
Hopefully by now you have downloaded iOS 6 but have you turned on Guided Access on your iPad yet? Keep in mind that Guided Access is for 2nd
generation iPads and up, so sorry all you iPad 1 owners
To turn on Guided Access is pretty simple and straight forward. First go to your settings and tap on the General option. Once in the General Settings you will scroll down to the bottom where you will see Guided Access. Tap on it to access the Guided Access settings menu.
Once you are in the Guided Access settings menu slide the off switch to on to activate it. I highly recommend setting a password. After you have turned Guided Access you can now activate it by going to your favorite app and triple tapping the home button.
After you triple tapped the home button you will see the image of the app you are working. You will simply draw on the areas of the screen you want to restrict access to. In this example I opened Touch Chat restricted access to the menu bar.
You also have the option of completely deactivating any touch feature on the screen, turning all the hardware buttons off (i.e., volume, home button, etc...), and turning motion sensing off. You also have the ability to select multiple sites on the screen to restrict access to and it does not only need to be one area.
