Lightbulb iPhone the smartphone of choice for 10% of British primary school kids


One in 10 schoolchildren in the UK under the age of 10 is an iPhone user, according to a new survey released by cloud service vendor Westcoastcloud.

The company commissioned a survey of 2,000 British parents of children aged 10 and under to determine how big a role emerging technologies play in their lives. In addition to finding that 10% of British children own an iPhone, the survey also found that 5% of British children own an iPad.
Of the parents who bought their children smartphones, 68% said they did so to keep better track of their children. Most parents reported paying around 10 a month on their children's phone bills, although 20% of parents said their children's monthly phone expenses top 20 or more.
As for what British children are using their smartphones for, the survey found that 20% of child smartphone users text message, 10% can use the device to go online and 5% draft and send email on their smartphones. Most children primarily use their smartphone to make phone calls, however, which fits in with parents' desire to keep better tabs on their children.
The biggest potential trouble spot, said the survey, was that half of the parents questioned "said they have no parental controls installed on their internet connected devices to block access to certain websites, despite 5% of parents saying their child uses their phone or laptop when they are out." Westcoastcloud Director Bill Strain said that parents who let their children adopt connected technologies need to be more careful in filtering what their children can access.
"If parents are happy for their children to be using these products they need to understand that the internet is not a private place," he said. "Filtering products are available that can help parents keep their kids safe online."
