Fol­low­ing In­sta­gram’s move to pro­mote more in­ten­tional screen time, Ap­ple is in­tro­duc­ing sev­eral new fea­tures to help you have a health­ier re­la­tion­ship with your phone.

The ‘Screen Time’ fea­ture will let you see how much, how of­ten and for what you’re us­ing your phone, and there’s also an ‘App Limit’ that al­lows users to set quo­tas on cer­tain apps, warns them when they’re close to the set time limit and dis­ables the app once they’ve reached it. New parental con­trols in­clude ‘Down Time’, where apps can’t be ac­cessed, and ‘Al­lowances’ to set a num­ber of digital min­utes.
