      Hi everyone, I am inclined on closing this bug as 'Won't Fix'. This was never something that the Launcher was designed to respect, so technically this becomes a feature request and not a bug. With that said I believe this becomes a possibility once we go live with the account migration. You will be able to link a child Microsoft Account to a parent account, and be given parental controls to set Xbox permissions, including game time. I'll leave this bug open for now until we start rolling out migration.

      Apple's screen time app that blocks the apps after an amount of time does not close or block Minecraft after the time runs out.  It acts in a similar way to any other program run through java, and opens a second window saying " You've reached your limit on Minecraft."  Blocking Java and Javaw has no effect.
