T.T. O’Brien on Apple’s efforts to help iPhone uses with their iPhone addictions:
Yes, smartphone addiction is a thing and since Apple brought about the mobile revolution Apple is saddled with responsibility for curing the addiction. How? Our favorite iPhone maker has a new set of tools to help us use iPhones with more efficiency.
Screen Time looks to be a way to use the iPhone more so you can use it less.
So, we’re getting more tools to do more work and to have more fun while we work. And, we’re getting more tools to control how much we work, when we work, and to help us better manage our iPhone usage. But to do so, we have to use the iPhone even more.
Mixed signals? Indeed.
