Does Apple have an obligation to make the iPhone safer for kids?

The average teen spends at least six hours a day looking at a screen, with most of it from using a smartphone.\n\nMany parents, naturally, have wondered if so much time spent in front of a screen is safe.\n\nRecent research suggests it’s not. Teens who spend five or more hours a day on electronic devices are 71 percent more likely to have a risk factor for suicide than those who spend less than an hour a day on a device. Digital media use is linked with more depression and less happiness, with experiments, natural experiments and longitudinal studies all showing that digital media use leads to unhappiness rather than the other way around.
