So many lives
iPhone > Settings > General > Screen Time — a quite useful function in iOS. With a simple numeric code I can set a limit on app usage, purchases and other functions. As no other tool left for me as a parent, I started using it on my teenage children iPhones. It just makes our life much easier, less negotiations, banter, begging and quarrel.
ScreenTime made me realise how many lives could have been saved if cars had a similar function. Imagine your 17-year old speeding with friends Saturday night. You could set a limit on speed using the app provided by the car’s manufacturer. Or set geographical locations where she or he is allowed to drive. You could block for example highways or selected neighbourhoods. So many use cases are coming to my mind.
