Question on Screen Time. I have it set for my daughters ipad and phone to only allow 2 hours of use on school days, and unlimited on weekends. I have a custom schedule set (12,2,2,2,2,2,12) and I set it for All Apps & Categories. However, there are certain cases where I want to allow exceptions (snow day, school holiday). So, what happens now is if it’s a Monday and a snow day, and she’s not in school, and I didn’t think about it ahead of time, she hits her two hour time limit soon in the morning and it locks her out of all the apps as I had set up. But when she goes to request more time, she has to ask for more time one app at a time. Isn’t there a way I can approve more time for “All Apps & Categories” all at once, so the entire iPad can be used for the additional time I approve? I can’t honestly believe Apple didn’t think of this, and I’m assuming I’m just missing it somehow. Am I wrong?
