It’s safe to say that many of us spend a lot of time on our phones. Whether it is texting friends and family or mindlessly scrolling through Facebook, our phones are rarely very far from us.

Which begs the question, just how much time are we spending looking at Reddit, Instagram, and other apps that call our phones home. Luckily, Apple gives users a way to check those stats on the iPhone.

How to check app usage time on your iPhone

If you are curious to know how much time you’re spending wasting on different apps like Facebook, Spotify, and Twitter, the iPhone makes it super easy to check those numbers:

That’s it! You can now see how much time you spend on apps and let me tell you, the information might surprise you. If you’d like to see a bigger picture of app usage, you can also switch the stats between “Last 24 hours” and “10 days”.
