    What do you use to lock folders on iPad? I was hoping to be able to use Touch ID to lock some folders but that's not possible yet. I hope it's coming in and update sometime soon.

    Yeah it is locked I'd just like to have the ability lock some folders as well.
    I assume you mean app folders. No you can't lock those. If you meant photo folders, you can use photo album apps to create albums. Then you can delete the photos from the camera roll.
    If you let someone use your phone to do something specific in an app, you can use Guided Access in Accessibility. It works great for kids too. It Locks the phone to one app. So they can't snoop.

    Are you referring to locking grouped app folders that you create on your homescreen? That functionality is not available on iOS unless you jailbreak. As for future updates, anything is possible.

    Yeah I have some folders I'd like to lock every now and then somebody ask to see my iPad I don't mind letting them see but I have some financial apps I rather have locked in a folder as well.
