Apple yesterday released iOS 13.3 and iPadOS 13.3 to the public. We thought iDownloadBlog readers might want to know what's new so we've put together a nice little hands-on video walkthrough taking you through the best new iPhone and iPad features enabled by the update.
With the release of iOS 13.3 came a new Screen Time feature called Communication Limits. This is a cool tool that parents have to limit who their children can communicate with during downtime or anytime.
So if you want your child to only be able to contact you or your spouse during their device downtime, for example, this feature lets you do that.
Setting up the Communication Limits on iPhone or iPad takes only a few minutes and we’ll walk you through how to do it in this tutorial.
Apple today released iPadOS and iOS 13.3, the third major software update to the mobile operating system powering the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch following its launch in September. The update is available as an over-t
Screen Time is a way for Apple to try and let iOS users keep tabs on their digital health on a regular basis. And now there's a new tool being baked into the feature.
macOS Catalina introduces new features and functionality for the Mac. Among them is Screen Time, the tool that enables users to see what apps and services they're spending time using. Screen Time follows the convention of features that make their debut on iOS later migrating to the Mac. Unfortunately, Screen Time's Mac implementation leaves something to be desired.
Screen Time's intent is to make you more aware of where you're spending your time – reading news, surfing the web, using social media apps, playing games. Just as important, Screen Time can provide essential details for parents concerned about their kids' device usage. The app also provides parents with lock-out and limitings features to help reign in their kids' use.
A year after bringing out Screen Time for iPhone and iPad Apple has added this handy feature to the Mac with the latest macOS Catalina 10.15 update. Too bad it‘s not working correctly.
If you’ve set up Screen Time on Mac, whether for yourself or a child, you likely created limits, scheduled downtime, restricted content, or all three. But another great part of the Screen Time feature is its reporting.
If you want to see exactly how long your child spent using an app or how many times you picked up your own device, these interactive reports can be really handy. They can help you makes adjustments based on what you learn.
Let’s walk through those usage reports in Screen Time on your Mac so that you can decide if you need to make changes or if the settings you put in place are working.
With the Screen Time feature on Mac, it’s just as easy to set limits and restrictions on your computer as it is on your iPhone or iPad. Whether for yourself or your child, you can minimize the time spent staring at a screen.
And just like Screen Time on iOS, this feature on Mac lets you restrict certain websites or allow only specific ones to keep your child from seeing something they shouldn’t. This is important for children of all ages and is easy to set up.
Here’s how to restrict websites on Mac or only allow access to certain ones with Screen Time.
When Apple introduced the Screen Time feature with iOS 12, it was a nice addition for many. From monitoring your own device screen time to your child’s, the feature has many helpful and useful options.
With the release of macOS Catalina, Apple decided to bring that Screen Time feature to Mac. And it’s just as valuable on your computer screen as your mobile device. This tutorial walks you through how to use Screen Time on Mac.
Screen Time is a helpful tool for iOS users who want help reducing their device and app usage. At this year's WWDC, Apple introduced new features coming to Screen Time in iOS 13, which will launch later this year.
Screen Time was introduced in iOS not too long ago, and the app, while it has its limitations, is a solid foundation for a tool that allows users to control app and device usage on their iOS devices. For parents, it's an easy, built-in way to help monitor and control their child's usage, too. And now Screen Time is coming to Mac.
A recent report claimed Apple will port the iOS Screen Time feature over to the desktop so folks could see how their computing time is spent (or wasted, depending on your point of view). The upcoming macOS 10.15 feature will probably use the company's Marzipan framework that helps developers create cross-platform apps across iPhone, iPad and Mac.
