App Limits Feature In Screen Time

App Limits is the key feature that I adored in Screen Time. This is a long-awaited feature for parental control on devices. The app limits feature can restrict the time you can spend on an app.

I like this feature for devices that my kids are using. I can easily set a daily time limit for gaming apps to ensure kids do not keep playing games indefinitely.

How To Setup Parental Control Using Screen Time?

You can use the daily time limit feature to control usage of each app on your device. This can be protected by a password that can enforce these restrictions.

I prefer to keep 10 minutes for gaming apps on weekdays and 30 minutes on weekends. You can experiment with your own time limits and work out a good working plan with your kids.
