Smartphones have become an essential part of our lives. Kids love them too and are glued to their Apple screens either for playing games or watching cartoons. We ourselves are guilty of a lot of screen time and it’s important to set some boundaries. One needs to set a time limit for ownself and the kids too. If the kids aren’t going outside for any physical activity or fresh air. It means they are stuck with the screens. And for how long? Unfortunately, it has no limits.
Apple lets you use its Screen Time feature for restricting the limitless usage of iPads, Mac, iPhones, and iPod Touch. This built-in feature monitors and keeps track of how much time you spend on the device. It also automatically locks the apps, once you reach the amount of apple device screen time you had set up.
