iPhone Tips: Understanding and Bypassing Screen Time Limits

Share This:

It’s no secret that we’re all spending more and more time on our phones. In fact, the average person now spends more than 5 hours a day on their phone, and that number is only going up. For a lot of people, that time is spent scrolling through social media or watching videos. And while there are some benefits to using our phones in moderation, too much screen time can be harmful to our mental and physical health.

One way to combat this problem is to set a screen-time limit for yourself. This is a limit on the amount of time you’re allowed to spend on your phone each day. Setting a screen-time limit can help you break your addiction to your phone and give you back some of the free time you’ve been missing.

It’s important to note that just because you set a screen-time limit doesn’t mean you have to stick to it religiously. You can always choose to exceed your limit if there’s an emergency or something important comes up. But having a screen-time limit will at least help keep you accountable and make sure you’re not wasting too much of your time on your phone.

Why Is Screen Time Limit Not Working?

There can be a few reasons why the Screen Time limit isn’t working on your device. One possibility is that you haven’t yet added a limit for the app you want to restrict. To do that, open Settings and tap on Screen Time. Tap on the main graph shown on your screen and select the app you want to specify limits for. Tap on Add Limit at the bottom of the screen to specify limits.

Another possibility is that the time restriction you’ve set isn’t actually taking effect. To check this, open Settings and tap on Screen Time. Tap on the main graph shown on your screen and select the app you want to specify limits for. Under “Usage,” you’ll see how much time you’ve been allowed to use the app today and over the course of the week. If the time restriction doesn’t match what you set, then it’s not actually taking effect.

Finally, if you’re trying to set a limit for a specific day but it’s not working, it’s possible that there’s already a time limit in place for that day. To check this, open Settings and tap on Screen Time. Tap on “Today” under “Usage.” Under “App Limits,” you’ll see a list of apps with their corresponding time limits. If one of your apps has a time limit listed here, then it’s overriding any other limit you’ve set for that app.

Screen-time limit can be a useful tool to help you manage your time on your phone. However, there are ways to bypass the controls if you’re determined to do so. If you’re having trouble with the feature, make sure to check your settings and usage to see what’s going on.
