Support Apple's "Screen Time" in Brave on MacOS and iOS 14+

I’ve seen mention that Chrome is adding support for Screen Time in iOS14 and am hoping this is planned for Brave as well: https://www.chromestory.com/2020/09/chrome-ios-screen-time/

This will ensure that Brave will block individual websites rather than blocking the entire app. This paves the way for scheduling blocks at specific times of day - e.g. giving us a way to block social media during work hours.

This is a vital feature to let us take control of our device usage, and help users manage screen addiction.

This is now available for testing in Chrome on iOS. You can try it out by enabling it here: chrome://flags

I hope this means that Brave on iOS is not far behind, though there is no sign in brave://flags as of yet.

As for MacOS support, it is apparently coming to Chromium, so Brave should hopefully get it as well: https://chromeunboxed.com/chrome-mac-os-screen-time-macbook-support

I have recently learned that the iOS version is not based on Chromium which I had wrongly always assumed. So clearly the fact that Chrome on iOS has added Screen Time has no bearing on whether Brave will be getting it.

Can any Brave developers let me know if Screen Time integration is on the roadmap for iOS?
