No, very similar but there are couple differences. On Android timeout is a single click feature. By toggling it on – meaning your child is in a “timeout” – all Internet access and apps will be disabled including SMS texting. On Apple, timeout comes with a couple customizations. You can have timeout either: disable all the internet to the device or you can block the internet PLUS one of the following: locking the screen completely or hiding all the apps on the phone. This lets you decide what type of timeout is appropriate for your child or teen.
