Want an account for kids, guests or someone else? We certainly want more than just the one
Apple clearly believes iPhones and iPads are inherently personal devices, owned and managed by a single person. That’s all well and good if you happen to be well off, but it’s not realistic for many people. Additionally, there are times when you want to temporarily hand over your device to someone, but don’t want them to have access to your data.
This is why we want to see multiple user accounts come to iOS. We doubt Apple would ever budge to the degree of providing Mac-like user accounts, but perhaps some kind of compromise would be possible. For example, we’d be happy with a stripped-back ‘child’ account, to minimise ‘damage’ when a young person wants to have a go on your device. Alternatively, a guest account that wipes itself clean when closed could be another option, albeit a sub‑optimal one compared to full user accounts.
