  1. Tap on the Settings.
  2. Go to General and choose Accessibility.
  3. Turn Guided Access On.
  4. Set a passcode.
  5. Launch the app you want to lock the device into.
  6. Triple-click the Home button.
  7. You can choose to disable touch or motion, in addition to disabling the Home and volume buttons.
  8. Tap the Start button.
