  2. Navigate to the "Screen Time" item and tap it.
  3. There you will find the "Enable Screen Time" option.

In addition to the detailed usage report, you can assign a daily limit to certain apps or categories via the "App limit" option. For example, you can set that you can only access productivity apps during working hours, but not social networks. Furthermore, you have the option to block content, purchases and downloads.If you want certain apps not to be affected by the restrictions and limits, you can set them as exceptions. Default exceptions are the phone app, messaging app, FaceTime app, and maps app.
