The group of Stanford students put their appeal on a flyer. Wrote above:
"69% of adults unlock their iPhone at least once every hour, and 50% of teens think they are addicted to their iPhone." The addiction to mobile phones has many unpleasant consequences, including stress, injury to friends, and Reduce productivity.
iPhone is the way we use addictive applications, including Facebook, so Apple has the ability to help us reduce our dependence on these applications. Although Apple's business model does not depend on cell phone addiction, but Apple still needs to take appropriate measures to solve this problem.
There are many things that Apple can do, such as providing users with track records of their applications, including which applications are used during each day of the day, just as health apps track movement.
Apple should also allow users to more effectively control their cell phone notification bar so that the phone displays only important notifications for a limited period of time.
Apple can also design a basic model, which is similar to the flight mode and mute mode, open the basic mode, the phone can only make calls and send text messages. "
Recently, the problem of electronic device addiction again began to attract attention. Earlier this year, some Apple investors wrote an open letter to Apple about the issue. Apple recently promised that it is developing more effective parental control features, which may include features that show the detailed usage of the phone.
According to a recent report by Bloomberg, iOS 12 will launch a tool called "Digital Health" to address some of the issues raised by the protesters. This will enable parents to understand what their children are doing with iOS devices and provide more transparent cell phone usage.
There are also rumors that the new iOS system will introduce a new DND option to block the message notification, which is similar to the idea of Stanford student protesters.
