This section gives you step by step instructions on how to enable and configure Guided Access in Apple iOS 15, with pictures of the screens to help.
1. Tap the Settings icon to launch the Settings app. Scroll down and select Accessibility from the list.
2. On the Accessibility screen, scroll to the General section at the bottom and tap Guided Access.
3. Tap Guided Access to turn the toggle switch on.
4. You can set a passcode to stop the user from switching off Guided Access before the set time-limit is up. Tap Passcode Settings.
5. On the Passcode Settings screen, tap Set Guided Access Passcode. Enter a six-digit code. If your device has Touch ID or Face ID you can also use that to end Guided Access. Tap Face ID or Touch ID to set the toggle switch to On.
6. The Time Limit setting allows you to choose a sound to play when a Guided Access session is coming to an end. You can also choose whether the remaining time is announced or not. Tap Time Limit.
7. To enable a sound, tap Sound and choose one from the list.
8. If you’d like to have the remaining time announced to the user, select Speak to set the toggle switch to on.
9. To allow the Accessibility Shortcut to be useable during a Guided Access session, tap Accessibility Shortcut to set the toggle switch to on.
10. By default, the device will lock when the display turns off after a period of inactivity. To override this for Guided Access sessions, tap Display Auto-Lock and choose a new time-out period.
11. Guided Access is now ready to use. When you've finished adjusting your settings, return to the Home screen by swiping up from the bottom of the screen or pressing the Home button, if your device has one.
