Apple hopes its new version of iOS will help people find a better life-device balance. Screen Time tools being added to the platform make it easier to control when and for how long people use their iPhones and iPads. For example, Screen Time provides an Activity Report for iOS devices, detailing which apps are being using, when, and for how long. Parents can use Screen Time to manage their kids’ devices. The tool gives parents the ability to block off time when iOS devices cannot be used at all, such as at night or during school. Parents can control which apps are available, how much time they are allowed to be used, and set limits. People can also use Screen Time to limit their own use of certain apps or their device in general. The tool works across iOS devices via Family Sharing. The new Screen Time tools will arrive with iOS 12 later this year.
