Most of us find ourselves spending an increasing amount of time staring at our cell phones. A lot of us are trying to decrease that time but it's hard when we're all addicted to texting and social media!

Luckily, Apple has realized that and they're adding in things to help us control how much time we waste on our phones.

First, they started showing us how much time we spend on each app, each day - which was honestly eye-opening.

Now they've added a feature that turns your screen into greyscale which may help you spend less time on your phone! Not only does removing the color make your apps less enticing (imagine Instagram entirely in black and white), it also is easier on your eyes AND it can help you read things better if you're colorblind.

Here's how to turn your phone screen into greyscale:

  1. Open the settings app
  2. Go to General
  3. Click Accessibility
  4. Choose Display Accomodations
  5. Select Color Filters
  6. Toggle Color Filters ON
  7. Select greyscale
