Apple is cracking down on popular apps that help customers curtail their screen-time usage.




Apple's own Screen Time feature allows users to track their screen time.




The move prompted two such apps to file a complaint with the European Union, according to The New York Times.



Apple has cracked down on apps designed to help people limit their screen time, according to a report from The New York Times.
This push roughly coincides with the tech giant's stated commitment to helping customers and parents limit their technology usage. When Apple introduced iOS 12 in the fall of 2018, it added Screen Time, a feature under the iPhone's settings that tracks usage stats.
This development seemed to reflect the tech giant's commitment to combat iPhone addiction. And earlier this month, Apple CEO Tim Cook spoke out on the topic.
