With iOS 9.3, Apple tried to solve a problem by having iOS devices decrease their blue light during the evening, as the company realized that this alters the body’s circadian rhythm, which results to disturbed sleep patterns. Night Shift has been introduced with the update.
One of the Reddit users nickjosephson recently spotted this feature in the Control Center when promotional images were published on Apple Canada’s website on the iOS preview page. Why is this such a big news? Because currently, you need to activate this feature manually by going the Settings. With the Night Shift feature coming to Control Center, using it is going to become a lot easier.
Night Shift feature – Things you should know about
Let us first see how Night Shift will work on iOS 9.3. Here is how Apple has put the feature into words:
“Night Shift uses your iOS device’s clock and geolocation to determine when it’s sunset in your location. Then it automatically shifts the colors in your display to the warmer end of the spectrum, making it easier on your eyes. In the morning, it returns the display to its regular settings. Pleasant dreams.”
So this is how Night Shift on iOS 9.3 will detect your location and change settings as and when needed, so you can sleep peacefully at night. You can also use your iPad and iPhone till late at night without worrying about side effects. Before the feature gets its own place at the Control Center, here is how to activate it:
Go to Settings, then Display and Brightness. You will see “Blue Light Reduction” there. Now slide the switch towards the “Warmer” option. You can do it manually every time you enter low-light areas to reduce blue light on your device, or select “Schedule” for automatic activation of the Night Shift Feature.
