Apple will offer software to cure digital addiction

Tim Cook, the computer giant’s top exec, said Apple this week will start offering new software for hardcore users of iPhones and tablets who want to limit their hours online, the Sunday Times of London reported.

The initiative, called “Digital Health,’’ is designed to wean heavy users away from their devices.

Cook said earlier this year he did not want his young nephew to be on a social network, according to the newspaper.
