Guided Access helps someone using iPad to stay focused on a particular task. Guided Access limits iPad to a single app, and lets you control which app features are available. Use Guided Access to:

  • Disable the iPad hardware buttons
  • Disable areas of the screen that arent relevant to a task, or areas where an accidental gesture might cause a distraction
  • Temporarily restrict iPad to a particular app
  • Use Guided Access: Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Guided Access, where you can:
    • Turn Guided Access on or off
    • Set a passcode that controls the use of Guided Access and prevents someone from leaving an active session
    • Set whether iPad can go to sleep during a session
  • Start a Guided Access session: Open the app you want to run, then triple-click the Home button. Adjust settings for the session, and then click Start.
    • Disable app controls and areas of the app screen: Circle any part of the screen you want to disable. You can use the handles to adjust the area.
    • Ignore all screen touches: Turn off Touch.
    • Keep iPad from switching from portrait to landscape or from responding to any other motions: Turn off Motion.
  • End a Guided Access session: Triple-click the Home button and enter the Guided Access passcode.
