Apple has made some changes to how you set up and use Parental Controls, including remote managing, activity reports, and scheduled downtime. Here's what's new in Parental Controls coming in iOS 12.
Viewing your kids' device usage remotely
With new updates in iOS 12, you'll be able to set up Parental Controls through Family sharing so you can manage your child's device usage remotely. You can set allowances for screentime and even set up categories and specific apps. So, you can restrict little Kevin's gaming between 5:00 and 7:00 PM, but allow him to use the education apps he needs for his homework!
Get an overview activity report
Check in with your kids' device usage on a daily, weekly, monthly basis by running an activity report. You can see how much time your child has been using their device, see which apps they're using, and when they've been using it. You can also see how often your little one picks up their phone and how many notifications they receive.
Screen Time is partly to help you better understand your device usage, but it's also where you will program things like app restrictions and downtime and get a usage report for your munchkins' activities.
You'll still be able to blacklist and whitelist content, keep an eye on the kids with location tracking, and all the other great parental control features, but now it's combined with the Screen Time feature in iOS 12.
