How Does Opal Work? (iOS)

Opal lets you measure your focus, block distractions, automate your days and more. In order to do this, Opal uses Apple's Screen Time API technology, which requires you to give permission.

You can find a full list of Opal features here.

Give Opal permission

When you install Opal, your iPhone will ask you for permission to “Allow Opal to Manage Restrictions". You have to hit "Allow" and then you will see the screen below.

Once Opal is approved to manage restrictions, you will be able to experience the magic of Opal blocking distracting apps.
