It was showing that siri is suggesting you to play the game based on your time lol
It will also place it on your dock if it’s not on the dock I think…

I believe it means there is a timer set on screen time for the app. Better get playing before it runs out.


#8

Is that the only game on your iPad?


#9

but if its a timer you can just turn it off in the apps settings(or just ignore the alert)

I think @bilingual is talking about a screen time timer set by a guardian. I’m not sure how those kinds of timers work, but it’s possible a child couldn’t be able to disable it, only a guardian.

You can control/modify the settings if you have a pin,assuming it’s even protected by a pin

I’m wondering if the settings are protected by a passcode or Touch ID, and if it’s the new iPad Pro, Face ID.


#13

I guess so(maybe someone should try)


#14

You should try.


#15

Can’t update to iOS 12 because…ipad 2 xD


#16

Oh, I see.


#17

Yes. Find screen time in settings and you should be here.

See if there is a passcode. If there is, you can’t change it without it. If there isn’t, you can change settings by clicking “app limits.”

Does that share across devices switch mean that a parent can set it up on their device to control their children’s devices remotely?


#21

I don’t think so I don’t have any timers on my ipad or use screen time or whatever and I’m the only person who has access to my iPad

iPad Pro 10.5 inch

Nope I have a bunch of other ones blockheads is the only one i play when bored

I don’t know. I haven’t tried it.

@SHINYCRYSTAL maybe you sleepwalk. I’ve done it before. (And I took my phone with me) Maybe you changed some settings. LOL
