Apple launched a new iOS update two days ago, version 13.3, which includes some very interesting news and among them We have a new option in the interesting function Time of use.
Time of use came along with iOS 12 and allows us to control the use we make of our device, we can even put limits of use to the applications we want to avoid excessive use. Now with the arrival of iOS and iPadOS 13.3 this function has improved incorporating communication limits, something very important especially for the smallest of the house.
How to set communication limits on the iPhone thanks to iOS 13.3
The new communication limits, for example, allow parents to manage with whom their children can contact through FaceTime, Phone, Messages and iCloud contacts. But it can also help you reduce the time you use by communicating with someone.
To correctly configure the limits to communication on your iPhone or Ipad you must have the latest version of iOS and iPadOS and then follow these steps:
- Go to the Settings> Usage time> Communication limits.
- Now press on the first option: During the allowed time of use.
- Put your code security to access.
- Select if you want these limitations to be for everyone or just for your contacts.
- Now you must go back and click on During inactivity.
- Here you can select specific contacts with whom set limits.
Now we just have to go back to Usage Time and click on Downtime. Ah we can define the time interval in which our restrictions will be active. In addition, it should be borne in mind that calls to emergency numbers will always be allowed and, when made, will deactivate communication limits for 24 hours to ensure that children are safe.
