Apple's digital health initiative in iOS 12 includes Screen Time, a settings menu that shows you how much time you spend playing games, reading news, and what else you can do. This menu also allows you to plan downtime from your iPhone, set time limits for your apps, and more. Although all of this is great, it's hidden in the Settings app – but there's a faster way to access that data.
To access the screen time options, you need to install iOS 12 on your iPhone. You have not already done so. After that, you will have access to the "Screen Time" menu in the "Settings" app, directly below "Do Not Disturb".
Instead of opening the Settings app every time you want to check app usage statistics, you can add downtime or add new limits for addictive apps, you can add Screentime widget to your Today view. This area can be displayed by swiping right from the lock screen, the notification center, or the home screen.
If you're in the Today view, scroll all the way down and then tap Edit. On the next screen, tap the green plus sign (+) next to "Screen Time" under More Widgets to add it to your Today view. You can also change the order of your widgets by dragging them up or down with the three-line icon to the right of each added widget. Once you're done, click Done.
Now, whenever you want To view the app To check usage statistics, just open the Today view and look at your widget. By default, the widget displays what is consuming most of your iPhone time, either by app name or by category. Tap this widget to go directly to screen time settings, where you can see more details about your usage, add app limits, and more.
On some devices, the widget's statistics are not aligned correctly, as above see is. This should be resolved if everyone receives the iOS 12 update in September. Also, there is no link to the widget when 3D touches the app's Settings icon on the home screen or a link to the screen time settings.
