With this you will have already activated the function on your device, but you will only be able to have your time data on the screen from now on. Unless you already had the feature active beforehand.
You won’t be able to see the weather data on the screen retroactively, but when you use your phone a bit, you’ll start to see information on the graph.
When you have enough data, it will show you the history of the current week, by day, average, etc.
Additionally, it has the following functions to help you control your screen time:
- You can set a Disabled time, in which you must specify a time when you will not be able to use your phone, except for calls.
- It also allows you to set a Limit for apps, being able to control the time you spend on the screen by category of applications.
- There is also the Communication Limit in which you can set limitations for contacts.
Tap See all activity for a deeper breakdown, including most-used categories and apps.
You will be able to see the applications in which you are investing more time on the screen.
This is a quick and easy way to take a look at how you are using your phone. These figures may surprise some people, in addition to being able to take actions to make better use of their time and the use they give to their devices.
