I'm trying to determine the most optimal and streamlined method of blocking access to the Internet on my 15 y/o daughter's iPhone after a specific hour at night during the week and on weekends instead of our nightly ritual of making sure we have it in our possession at bedtime (especially since I usually go to bed much earlier). Right now, I enable restrictions on the Wi-Fi network after 10 PM and also on our AT&T account at the same hour so that during the week there should not be any way to engage in Snapchat/IM/Twitter etc. and get some sleep. Weekends are more liberalized, etc. This can get cumbersome when I periodically need to change settings and I'm not easily able to access the network settings on the computer.
Does anybody know of any simple solution that would essentially lock the phone down in airplane mode at a certain point in time? I would like to have a situation where she can use the phone for listening to music.
Note that I am not seeking parenting advice on negotiating cell phone use. Simply a streamlined technical solution. Thanks.
