    Problems with Screen Time

    First issue, Screen Time seems to have problems with the time. I've been using my device for several hours today, but as you can see in the screenshot below, Screen Time seems to think that 23:00 is 00:00, therefore showing only 48 minute of use.

    Second, Screen Time doesn't recognize my device name. It displays one that was created by default after the system was initiated the first time, not the one I've been using for weeks and that even appears on Settings > General > About.

    Third, the Notification Center widget sometimes displays a mess with a text overlaying another text instead of the graphic.

    Is anyone else experiencing these issues?

    Exactly the same for me on my iPhone 6s and my 2017 iPad...

    I had exactly the same bug. I used it all day (Since around 9am) and it had been logged in screen time but then when I looked again an hour ago this evening it only had since 6pm logged with the rest go the day empty.

    is this a 12.0.1 bug or something?

    Nope. I'm having all these bugs in 12.0.

    This feature is so broken. I mean, I got this notification a couple of days ago. Needless to say, I used my iPad during the week waaay more than that.

    I wonder if it has been fixed by 12.0.1 or 12.1.

    I have all 3 issues.

    It’s just the way Apple is nowadays.

    I wanna add that the usage of some apps is not even recognized by this feature. For instance I've been fooling around in the Reddit app for hours last week and they don't even appear in the data.

    Really, I appreciate Apple's efforts to attack these health problems, but the feature is so broken that is unusable.

    P.S. in case someone is interested, there is an app called Moment that SUPPOSEDLY does this right. I wouldn't be among its fans though, since it asks you to pay for subscription plans and doesn't seem to work that well. It uses the GPS location API to run in the background through all day, and yet it fails to be active unless you open it up every certain periods of time it seems.

    The weekly notification playing Sunday Morning on all my devices seems pretty much like trolling from Apple....

    Turned ScreenTime off a long time ago. Not fit for purpose.

    Today I re-enabled ScreenTime, hoping at least to take some advantage from the App Limit feature (Time Limit? Don’t remember the name), but even that is worthless. What a bum.
