Where previously a student would have to be over 13 to hold an iTunes account, with iOS 7, Apple have now updated their Ts & Cs to give individual access to students under 13 years old. They do still have to have their account created at the request of an ‘approved educational institution’, however.
This means, when iOS 7 is released, each student can access iTunes with their own individual log-in, download apps, iBooks and more. All of which gives schools even greater flexibility when it comes to managing their iPad devices, and enhances the 1:1 nature of deployments.
The official terms of Apple’s policy state: “These App and Book Services are only available for individuals aged 13 years or older, unless you are under 13 years old and your Apple ID was provided to you as a result of a request by an approved educational institution. If you are 13 or older but under the age of 18, you should review this Agreement with your parent or guardian to make sure that you and your parent or guardian understand it.”
