How I Use Screen Time on iOS

Screen Time on iOS is like ice cream cake: so full of promise, and yet also always so underwhelming.

It’s probably Apple’s most valuable software update to iOS or MacOS in the last 10 years BUT the interface is built like what I would imagine an Intro to UX Design student would create if they were given the assignment: Design The Most Annoying User Experience Possible. It’s full of little quirks and poorly construed details that make it possible to do what you want, but not easy.

But, even with its foibles, it’s an incredibly valuable tool for anyone who wants to spend less time mindlessly using their phone and more time getting stuff done. I use Screen Time a lot and I have a couple of little tricks that I think make it really valuable.
