If you’ve updated your iPhone to new iOS version, you may meet various problems as the above user mentioned one. Here in this post, we will focus on the Restrictions missing after users have updated to iOS 13/12. It is reported that when users are turning on/off restrictions, it not working, as it has disappeared from iPhone after iOS update. Why does this happen? We know that this case had never happened before. Is there any opportunity to take the Restrictions back if it still on the iPhone? Absolutely there is. In this guide, we will tell you how to find the missing Restrictions.
iPhone Restrictions allows users to block or limit specific apps and features, and you can restrict some settings for app purchases, downloads, and privacy. Here’re some main features of it:
For iOS 11 and earlier, iPhone users can access restrictions by: Settings > General > Restrictions. And from iOS 12, Apple moved this feature to another position. Read the next part to find disappearing restrictions.
Actually, the Restrictions is not missing, it has just been moved to another place on the iPhone. When you updating your iPhone/iPad to iOS 13 or higher, you will find it in the Screen Time section in the Settings. (Screen Time is a new feature introduced with the release of iOS 12. It is designed to help you manage screen time and limit what you can see. To learn more details about Screen Time, you can read the new iOS features).
Now you can follow the steps below to access the Restrictions in the Settings:
Step 1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone/iPad, then tap the Screen Time.
Step 2. If you have previously enabled Screen Time, just move to Step 3. Otherwise, tap Turn on Screen Time, tap Continue on the following screen and then tap This is My Child’s iPhone.
Then, just follow the onscreen instructions to create your Restrictions passcode before you use the parental controls. After you set the passcode, you are allowed to control the Downtime, App Limits, content and age restrictions and more.
Step 3. Tap the Content & Privacy Restrictions, then you can slide the switch Content & Privacy Restrictions to the ON state.
Now that Content & Privacy has been turned on, you can control what can or cannot be accessed on your iPhone.
