They will have to return the device to your to enter the passcode.

2. Set the user by tapping on user names in the upper left of the screen. You will be prompted to add a user name before beginning the first run.

3. Press "Start"

4. Pass your iPhone or iPad to your child and let them use the phone any way you choose (e.g. apps, movies, music).

5. Screen Time runs in background and keeps track of how much time has expired.

MONITOR TIME REMAINING

-

You can get an approximation of how much time is remaining in the current session by switching to multi-tasking mode in iOS 7.

- Double-click the 'Home' button on the device to display recently used apps.

- Screen Time will show you the minutes remaining on the application screenshot.

- The background color changes to provide a visual cue to younger users who can not yet read or tell time. Green (over 5 minutes remaining), orange (less than 5 minutes), red (less than 2 minutes)

NOTIFICATION AND ALERTS

-

After your predetermined time, a series of alerts and notification will play alerting the child (and you) that their screen time is up.

- A single notification will be posted to Notification Center to all devices that share an iCloud account (e.g. iPhone, iPad, Mac Book Pro, Mac Pro). You will be prompted to grant access to your Calendar when the application first launches to use this feature. You can update this preference in Settings.

- Continous notifications will be presented on the device (similar to text messages). This will temporarily disrupt the child's activity on the device. Notifications continue to fire even in they child taps 'Cancel'. For best results (e.g. the most disruptive to the child), change the notification types to 'Alert' style using iOS' Setting.app.

- A siren will sound

- The camera's flash will fire when on the passcode screen

ENDING A SESSION

-

The notifications and siren will continue to fire until the correct passcode is entered;

1. Launch Screen Time. You can launch it directly from a notification by tapping on it.
