As technology becomes more prominent in society, it is crucial to investigate its effect on day to day life. The purpose of this study is to determine how the amount of time spent on iPhone applications affects how productive students feel in the span of one week. Results are tested through a survey which first determines general information about the student, and then guides students to navigate their phone settings and record the battery usage of the top three applications which use up the most battery. It is hypothesized that productivity decreases as battery usage increases due to the substantial amount of time spent on applications such as social media or other media platforms.
