We spend a lot of time with our faces in our phones. Instead of being present for the life that's going on in front of us, many people are too focused on their online social media lives. 

Apple's recent update to their iOS for iPhone included a screen time feature so users can track how much time they spend looking at their phones and which APPs are taking the majority of their attention. It even gives parents the ability to limit their children's overall screen time and use of certain APPs too. 

According to a new study, iPhone users spend more time on their phones per day than people with Androids. Here's exactly how it all breaks down.

People with iPhones spend an average of 4 hours and 54 minutes with their faces in their phones compared to Android users spending 3 hours 42 minutes per day. 

The study polled 2,000 people with half being iPhone users and the other half Android users. If you do the math that means iPhone owners are spending about 74 days per year looking at their phones! 

The study also found out that iPhone users spend more money on vacations, clothing, and tend to make more money per year than Android users. You can read more here
