In this era, every parent is concerned about their kid’s activity on social apps, games, and many more things among the iPhone. Not only the children but, the smartphone has taken over the head of adults and old age folks, and according to research, it creates a negative influence on mental health. To overcome these problems, Apple has added a Screen Time feature, which gives you control over social applications, and of course on your iPhone, by alarming you. For instance, if you’ve reached the set limit of using the app, screen time will automatically prevent the app and alert you not to use it until the other day.
Plus, it lets you extract the historical data of last month, the last 7 days, and more, to encourage and help understand on which app do you spend more. All these statistics and data are available in the Screen Time section of the Settings app. However, it’s a bit tedious to open the Settings app and navigate through the Screen Time every time. Thankfully, Apple allows you to stick the Screen Time Widget on the iPhone Home Screen, only if it is updated to the iOS 14 or later.
