Apple today announced new tools built into iOS 12 to help customers understand and take control of the time they spend interacting with their iOS devices.

Users can then set time usage limits per app, giving them a notification if they reach a daily time usage limit. Based on this data, individuals can set up time restrictions for specific apps, websites, or categories of apps.
