Set limits for how much time your child spends on their iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, and monitor how they use their device with parental controls.
With Screen Time, you can access real-time reports about how much time you spend on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, and set limits for what you want to manage.
Turn on Screen Time
- On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, go to Settings > Screen Time.
- Tap Turn On Screen Time.
- Tap Continue.
- Select This is My [device] or This is My Child’s [device].
With Screen Time you can also create a dedicated passcode to secure settings, so only you can extend time or make changes.
The settings that you can manage:
- Always Allowed
- App limits
- Content & Privacy restrictions
With Family Sharing, you can share music, movies, apps, and more with family — and it now works with Screen Time. You can view reports and adjust settings for children in your family any time, right from your device.
