You can easily remove the screen time limits that have been set for applications or app categories on an iPhone or iPad, again allowing unlimited use of the app or app category, or to redefine a more specific screen time limit.

For those who are not familiar, Screen Time is an iOS feature that allows you to set time limits on the use of applications, either for individual applications or even for complete categories of applications. It is incredibly useful for the use of the iPhone and the iPad, whether you simply want to reduce your own use of a particular application or type of application, or perhaps especially for parents and child care providers who wish to limit the time of the device.

This guide will show you how to eliminate a time limit that has been set in an application, or in a complete category of applications, through the Screen Time in iOS. This works in the same way to eliminate screen time limits, whether they are configured on an iPhone or iPad.

How to bypass a screen time limit for applications on iPhone or iPad

  1. Open the "Settings" application on iPhone or iPad
  2. Go to "Screen time" in the configuration *
  3. Choose the "Application Limits" section of Screen Time
  4. Tap the application or category with a set limit that you want to delete and remove the limit for
  5. Click on "Delete limit"
  6. Confirm that you want to delete the time limit in the application/category by pressing again for "Delete limit"
  7. Repeat the steps to remove other screen time limits if desired; otherwise, exit Configuration.

Once the application limit or category limit has been removed, the application or applications in that category will no longer be limited by the time limit that has been applied.

For example, if you previously set a screen time limit for social networks on an iPhone or iPad and then removed the limit for the social media category, then all applications that fall into that category (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, etc.) could be used again for an unlimited time (unless you set another time limit anyway).

Of course, you can also turn off the Screen Time in iOS completely if you also want to go down that route, but turning off Screen Time also stops report functions, which many users like since it shows them how much time they spend. . several applications and provides information on the use of iPhone or iPad devices.

Screen Time requires iOS 12 or later, therefore, if you do not have a newer version of iOS on your iPhone or iPad, you will not find the ability to modify the use of Screen Time and much less configure it in the first place because the function does not It does not exist in previous versions of iOS.

Note: - Please note that if the Screen Time has an access code set in iOS, the correct access code of the Screen Time must be set before you can access the specific Screen Time settings. You can also remove or deactivate the Screen Time access code as well, but that is a subject for a different article.
