A small group of four Stanford University students are urging Apple to make iPhones less addicting. The group, which calls itself 'Stanford Students Against Addictive Devices,' held a protest at the Apple Store in Palo Alto, holding up signs with phrases like "Apple HOLDS US CAPTIVE" in an effort to get the tech giant to take phone addiction seriously.

Sanjay Kannan, Evan Sabri Eyuboglu, Divyahans Gupta, and Cameron Ramos, all of whom graduate from Stanford this spring, said that the project was initially a way to fill a requirement for a class about ethics in coding but soon turned into a mission to get businesses to address a serious issue.

"iPhones are our gateway to addictive services, so Apple is uniquely capable of helping us curb our dependence," the group wrote on a pamphlet. "Even though Apple's business model does not rely on device addiction, they fail to take common sense steps to address the issue."
