I just purchased an iPad for my child. This iPad is the only Apple device that I own. After it arrived, I realized after the fact that iPads apparently do not support more than one user, which is news to me, as I'm an Android user and Android has supported multiple users per device for quite a long time now.
I don't have an iPhone, another iPad, or even a MacBook, or really any other Apple hardware at all. I have access to Windows 10, so I installed iTunes, but it appears that it's not possible to manage apps via iTunes either. There also doesn't appear to be a way to manage anything from a browser, so it appears that my only method of controlling things is to log into and out of my account and my child's account on the device to manage things, and this appears to wipe everything that I have configured.
I have created a family profile, I've created a child account, I have purchased an learn-to-read application in my main account, and after logging into my child's account, I can use the application, but it appears that the Screen Time settings get wiped whenever I log out and into the iPad.
What I'm trying to do is the following:
- Set up this iPad for my child.
- Setup Screen Time for my child to limit access to basically everything, I only want the apps that I select to be usable, no internet access, no maps, etc.
Do I really need to buy another iPad in order to manage this iPad, or am I missing something here?
