*If you already have a child Apple ID for your child, you may use that.

This account will be linked to the parent’s Apple ID and has a number of optional features:
-Shared Device Tracking
-Shared Purchases (Apps, Music, Movies, and TV)
-Ask to Buy
-Separate email / iMessage
-Legal for under 13
-Separate iCloud space for backup and data

Parent payment information on file at the time of Apple ID creation (can be removed after)
