Apple Revises iTunes Policy to Allow Educational Accounts for Children Under 13

You know that the company from Cupertino previously restricted iTunes accounts to children aged 13 or older. However, things have changed and Apple has revised its policy.

So, according to the new Terms and Conditions, after the iOS 7 release children under the age of 13 will be able to create their own iTunes accounts at the request of an "approved educational institution," Macworld reports.

Here’s the official Apple’s announcement:

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.

This is I believe a step forward for Apple as the company’s devices can surely become a good educational tool.
