The calls came from investors Jana Partners and the California teachers pension fund, these two investors hold more than $2 billion worth of Apple shares.
Apple has now confirmed to Bloomberg that they are working on new parental controls for their iPhone and iPad which are designed to address these issues.
“We have new features and enhancements planned for the future, to add functionality and make these tools even more robust,” the Apple spokeswoman added.
The company did not specify exactly what changes would be made to parental controls on the iPhone and iPad. At the moment parents can control a number of things on the handsets. They can restrict app usage, access to website and movies and more.
It will be interesting to see exactly what Apple has planned for parental tools on their iOS devices, the company did not give any information on when these new tools would be introduced.
