The survey, commissioned by Sapio Research, tracked the cell phone use of 11,000 adults over the age of 18 in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., France, Germany, South Africa, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia and Brazil.
The report says a quarter of respondents use apps to limit screen time or improve concentration, though more are using Apple’s Focus and Live Activities to reduce their distractions and focus on school and work.
The report says that since its launch in September 2021, 56% of iPhone users use Focus Mode,
Attached Apple’s official introduction is as follows:
In iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 or later, Focus Mode helps you stay focused when you need to, or keeps you from being distracted by your device. You can customize the settings for Focus Mode, choose when you want to receive reminders and notifications, and let other people and apps know you're busy.
Apple introduced the Live Activities feature in October 2022, and 41% of users surveyed said they had used it, 35% said they had not, and 24% said they were unaware of it.
The Live activities feature is simple to understand and simplifies the steps users take to access information and streamline operations. With the new Live Activities API, notifications can be set to display customized content, automatic updates, such as dynamic viewing of game scores, taxi trips, etc., as well as controlling music playback, full-screen display of album artwork, etc. jkhdjjdbnf
