- Control panel: informs the user the amount of time that remains in the device, the number of times it is unlocked, the number of notifications and the applications that have been used, in order to create a balance between the time spent in the device and the time it uses for other activities.
- Wind Down: aims to facilitate the conciliation of sleep by lighting the "night light" at dusk, and activating the "do not disturb" function, to put the luminosity in gray scale and make it less striking to the eye.
- App Timer: allows the user to set a time limit on the use of applications, which will be closed by the system when the time runs out.
