I have my guys earn the ipad by doing school work first and earning tokens (which includes tokens for amount of time off all forms of screen time, exercise, schoolwork, random good behavior,etc). They turn in tokens for ipad time. I have to use some limits available on ipad to help them stay true to allowed time. I set a pass code on the ipad which solved finding ipads under the pillow after bedtime. I can set a time limit with guided access. This only works if they are working on one site though. I also encourage them to set a timer themselves on the ipad. When they turn the ipad off when the timer goes off, they get tokens for that as well. Good luck.
