Observe how much time you’re spending on your phone
The new update will have a ‘Screen Time’ section which will reveal how many hours you’ve actually spent on your phone in the form of daily and weekly activity reports. The reports will be broken down into where you’ve spent most of your time, be it games, entertainment or social media.
“With Screen Time, these new tools are empowering users who want help managing their device time and balancing the many things that are important to them,” Apple’s senior vice president of Software Engineering Craig Federighi said in a statement.
