How Do I Turn Off Screen Time On My iPhone And iPad?


Is there a way to ignore the Screen Time limit on iOS?

You can disable Screen Time on an iPhone or iPad but it may require a passcode.

Launch the Settings app on your iOS device and navigate to the Screen Time section. Swipe down to the bottom of Screen Time and tap the option that says Turn Off Screen Time.

If Screen Time was initially enabled by another person, they may have set a passcode that needs to be entered before Screen Time can be completely disabled.

Some users have reported that Screen Time limits set to lock down a device during a certain time of day can be bypassed by changing the date/time of the iPhone or iPad. App Sliced does not recommend this workaround as there may be unintended consequences.
