Join Kevin Favro for an in-depth discussion in this video Removing features and functionality, part of iOS App Development: Accessibility.
- [Instructor] We left off in our last video…talking about restricting certain parts of our app…when running within a guided access session.…In this video I'd like to show you how we,…as developers, can choose to limit certain…functionality within our app when it's…being run in a guided access session.…We'll make the choice to prevent our users…from favoriting a bridge from the detail screen…whenever our app is being run…within a guided access session.…It's fairly easy to do so let's get started…by opening up our bridge detail view controller…and navigating to our viewDidLoad method.…
