The average person spends 5.4 hours a day on their smartphone, according to a new study of iPhone users.
After surveying 1,000 baby boomers and 1,000 millennials, the study found that both generations share similarities when it comes to how and when they use their devices. Each respondent was asked to go into their iPhone screen time settings and note exactly how much time they’ve spent on individual apps over the past 10 days, researchers then determined how that time use breaks down on a daily basis by age and generation.
The study found that millennials spend an average of 5.7 hours, daily, on their smartphones, while baby boomers spend an average of 5 hours. Both generations spend the greatest amount of time on the Facebook app, followed by Instagram, however the generations split from there on: millennials spend more time texting, talking on the phone and using internet applications, while boomers recorded more time on email and Facebook messenger. Overall, one-in-three respondents underestimated how much time they actually spend on their phones, but they don’t care. Roughly 66-percent of people said they won’t cut back on screen time even knowing how their numbers break down.Courtesy of provisionliving.com
