Students and limited screen time : Broken locks does not break habits (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna rapport är att undersöka effektiviteten av de inbyggda verktygen för att minska skärmtid i Apples iOS för studenter. Frågeställningen vi har undersökt är “Hur förändras studenters mobilvanor genom att låta Apples Skärmtid låsa appar?”.

Vi har genomfört en undersökning där våra deltagare har fått sätta egna begränsningar på sin totala appanvändning under en vecka. Därefter har vi samlat in data med enkäter och intervjuer kring deras appanvändning.

Resultatet har visat på att många studenter vill minska sin skärmtid, speciellt inom sociala medier, men verktygen vi undersökt  är inte effektiva nog för att ändra dessa vanor. Många av deltagarna låste upp sina appar trots att de ville minska sin skärmtid.

Deltagarna menade på att det finns bra och dålig skärmtid, där produktivitet och kommunikation är bra och sociala medier är dåligt. Därför ville många av deltagarna hellre bara begränsa sociala medier istället för att begränsa all skärmtid.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this report is to examine the effectiveness of the built-in tool for reducing screen time in Apple’s iOS on students. The problem statement we’ve looked at is “How are students phone habits affected by letting Apple’s Screen Time lock apps?”.

We have carried out an experiment where participants set limits to their own total screen time during one week. Afterwards, we have collected data with surveys and interviews examining their app usage.

The results show that many students want to lower their screen time, especially within social media, however, the tools we looked at are not effective to change these habits. Many of the participants unlocked their apps despite wanting to decrease their screen time.

Many participants expressed that there is good and bad screen time, where productivity and communication is good, and social media is bad. Therefore, many participants said they would rather only limit social media instead of limiting all their screen time.
