A new iOS software update as hit iPhones and Apple Watches. If your child has an iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch, it is important to understand the changes that come with software updates. Many updates come with new privacy and sharing features that you can utilize to better monitor and protect your child.

If your child doesn't have a phone, you may be hesitant to get them one for so many reasons. Gabb Wireless has addressed many of those concerns in their new phone developed specifically for kids and teens. While the device looks like a smartphone, the device doesn't have any apps or internet access. It features a "basic suite" of calling, texting, calendar, alarm, calculator and camera. And while the phone has a camera, users cannot send pictures via text. It is a great option for parents who are worried about starting their kids on too much technology, too soon.
