All of the ways Apple is helping us get off our phones and make them less of a distraction

3:44 PM ET Mon, 4 June 2018

Apple unveiled a series of upcoming updates to iOS geared towards minimizing how often we use our phones. Notifications can now be hidden when you put your phone on "Do Not Disturb during bedtime", and you can set rules around when you want to block notifications. A new app, Screen Time, sends you weekly reports with insight into how often you use your device and which apps you frequent most. Parents now have more controls to minimize how longs their kids spend on social media or playing games.
