Apple plans to introduce more features that would help parents manage their children’ usage of its smartphones as two investors called out their attention.
The two investors who are collectively controlling over $2b in Apple stock raised up concerns for not doing enough to protect children using their devices. In response, Apple publicly said in its statement to the Wall Street Journal that they would create features that would help mitigate the growing concerns around the negative effects in social media.
“We think deeply about how our products are used and the impact they have on users and the people around them,” Apple said in its statement to The Wall Street Journal. “We take this responsibility very seriously and we are committed to meeting and exceeding our customers’ expectations, especially when it comes to protecting kids.”
“We have new features and enhancements planned for the future, to add functionality and make these tools even more robust,” the Apple representative added.
However, Apple didn’t describe the features and did not release a timeline for the release yet.
