Parents warned about parental control issues on iPhones

NEW JERSEY (WABC) — Congressman Josh Gottheimer is talking about parents and parental controls on iPhones regarding time and adult content. He warns that parents are having issues – you can set the controls, but they might disappear.

“So today we woke up and I looked at the explicit setting – it was shut off,” Gottheimer said.

He says Apple is aware.

“I’ve been urging Apple. We called them, wrote them. I’ve done everything I can to sound the alarm for them to take action,” Gottheimer added.

So now he is warning parents to check settings and make sure they are still there – and keep checking.

He says Apple hasn’t fixed the problem yet, even though he’s been reaching out about the problem for two months.

Eyewitness News has reached out to Apple – so far there has been no response.
