By that logic, Safari should be 17+ only and should not be installed by default unless the user claims/proves that they are 17+. It's much easier to access nudity/porn via Safari. 500px's app required much more work, and contained "artistic nudity" not porn.

Safari can be disabled under parental controls for precisely this reason.

You're thinking of it backwards.

The device settings and parental controls are set BEFORE you hand the device to a child.

Restrictions are off by default.

It's up to the person with money to enable them before giving the device to the person, and periodically confirming they're still there.
