To turn off Screen Time on an iPhone or iPad, you'll need to disable it through the device's settings. Here's how to do it:

1. **Open Settings:**

   - Tap on the "Settings" app on your iPhone or iPad. It's typically located on the home screen.

2. **Access Screen Time Settings:**

   - Scroll down and tap on "Screen Time" in the Settings menu.

3. **Turn Off Screen Time:**

   - In the Screen Time menu, scroll down and tap on "Turn Off Screen Time" at the bottom of the screen.

   - You may be prompted to enter your Screen Time passcode if you have set one up.

   - Confirm that you want to turn off Screen Time by tapping on "Turn Off Screen Time" again in the confirmation pop-up.

4. **Disable Screen Time Passcode (Optional):**

   - If you've set up a Screen Time passcode and no longer wish to use it, you can disable it by tapping on "Change Screen Time Passcode" and selecting "Turn Off Screen Time Passcode."

Once you've completed these steps, Screen Time will be disabled on your device, and you won't receive usage reports or app limits. Keep in mind that turning off Screen Time will also remove any existing usage data and restrictions set up through Screen Time.
