Bug Submitted - ID # 41976021
I, too, was excited about Screentime for my two teenage daughters. I'm sure Screentime will continue to become more reliable as we progress through subsequent betas. As parents, we've resorted to keeping their phones in our room at night. We hope to not have to do this for much longer.
Another bug I found is on a family account (but over 13 years old) The teen can go into screentime settings and just click turn off screentime and it does NOT ask for the current password before turning off screentime (and canceling all restrictions in place) (I think I reported the bug properly # 43592092)
So you have a kid who is **** bent on using their phone, even after you have enabled screentime?
Yes, this was very smart of your child and I feel for your missing or graying hair in trying to always stay a step ahead of your kiddo and their more advanced technical knowledge, this day and age!
However, I offer you a solution now....just follow these EXACT steps...
Update their device iOS to 12.4.1
Turn off screentime
Power phone off, then back on
Set screentime back up
Go into content & privacy restrictions/location services and scroll to the bottom and click
on system services, turn the toggle off for setting time zone
Close settings (important step to close this out completely)
After these steps,
when you relaunch settings/general/date and time, you will find they can no
longer make changes other than toggle 24 hour clock on and off = problem
