Smartphone Screen Time: Baby Boomers And Millennials [Infographic]

Millennials are known for sticking to their equipment. But what is the difference between their smartphone usage and other generations? To find out, Provision Living surveyed 1,000 millennials and 1,000 baby boomer generation iPhone users. Each respondent is asked to enter their screen time settings and record their average daily screen time.

Then ask them to record the time spent on the most popular iPhone apps. The study shows that both generations have similar phone pattern usage - from the total amount of screen time recorded per day to the most attractive time app. Ordinary people spend 5.4 hours a day on their smartphones. Breaking this trend from generation to generation: Baby boomers spend an average of five hours a day on their phones, just below the millennial generation, with a daily screen time of 5.7 hours.

These numbers seem to be many. In fact, they believe that 82% of respondents believe their daily usage will be below the national average of 5.4 hours. So where is the time? The answer from two generations shows that social media consumes most of their daily screen time. Millennials record an average of 69 minutes per day on their Facebook app, while the baby boomer averages 60 minutes on Facebook. The second most popular app for two generations is Instagram, Millennials record 52 minutes a day on Instagram, and baby boomers record 44 minutes.

From there, generations have begun to make a difference. It is not surprising that the third-largest time in the millennial generation is to absorb text messages. The young people spent three-quarters of an hour sending messages to people they knew, and on average they talked over the phone for another 41 minutes. On the other hand, baby boomers spend time using email and messenger apps before sending text messages or talking over the phone. At the end of the day, both generations spent a considerable amount of time surfing the Internet on their phones. Today, about 60% of adults use their smartphones as their primary Internet service provider. If you don't rely on smartphones, Americans are used to it.

The vast majority of respondents (about 94%) believe that smartphone addiction is a real thing. It's hard to get away from their devices, worrying that there are no calls and text messages even in the middle of the night. The survey showed that nine out of ten people slept on the bed and their arms were within reach. Even after learning how much time they spend each day, staring, watching and listening to their devices, two-thirds of them say they have no plans to cut their daily screen time.

 Apple is trying to focus on people's apparent dependence on smartphones by creating pop-up alerts to track whether a user's screen time has "raised" or "dropped" from the previous weeks. But the study shows that even with this information, consumers will still type, chat, watch, tweet and everything else on their phones without any major problems.
