    Hi there can someone on here that owns an ipad mini please confirm that the restriction menu is available on the ipad mini?

    I am looking to buy two for my kids for Xmas and I need the restrictions for parental control

    Many thanks

    You're welcome. There are rumors that the iPad mini with Retina display will be released soon, so you might want to check on that before you buy your iPads - though I'm not sure how true these rumors are.

    May I suggest you have a read through this Apple article concerning the iPad's parental controls: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4213

    I'm going to give my granddaughter a mini when the new on comes out. Rather than specific restrictions, is there a way to see everything your child does on the iPad?

    Sorry, but the only way to really see everything a child does on a mini is to be with them and watching what they do.

    You could check the browser history on their iPad as long as they don't know how to clear it.

    Thanks. I was hoping my kids could discuss usage and use it as a learning experience rather than just imposing restrictions. Where is the browser history?
