Internet is something that we always use almost every day in our daily lives. There are many kinds of content on the internet that we can find such as health, science, business, entertainment, and so on. The problem comes when some of the contents on the internet are read or watched without any screening.

It is very important to screen the internet contents before we read or even share them with others. This is also related to time control in using our own gadgets so we do not always focus on them every day.

As one of the companies with advanced technology, Apple already has Screen Time that can be used to access real-time reports that show how much time you spend on your iPod Touch, iPod, or iPhone.

Besides Screen Time, you also can use other apps on App Store. When you have one of these apps, you can easily control and check how much time you and your family spend on your own gadget anytime.

Below are the 10 best parental control apps for iOS:
