iOS 9.3.1 has a new "Night Shift" setting. It is supposed to help you sleep better, by turning down screen brightness and softening display colors, during late evening and night hours. Do you use this setting?
Yes, I love it.
Can't they job fix the auto correct?
See what I mean? I typed "just" and the idiot phone thinks I meant to type job.
I didn't even know about it lol
I use minimum brightness anyways.
It isn't about the brightness. It's about using warm yellowish light versus the blue light that is typical of phones and other devices.
I've been using it. I like it.
No, I sleep.
What's that like? I've forgotten what real sleep is lol
I don't know, I'm asleep.
I haven't even updated my phone to the new IOS version.
No, I haven't updated my phone yet.
Yes. I started when I got 9.3. I still invert colors when I'm reading a webpage though, and it unfortunately turns off Night Shift. It also doesn't work in low-power mode. Both exceptions are annoying.
Never heard of it. How are you supposed to sleep while staring at your phone? I don't get it.
The idea is that it *should* be easier on your eyes and not interfere with your body making melatonin to make you sleepy. As to whether or not it actually works that way beyond placebo, the science to my knowledge hasn't yet been done.
Yeah. Sounds dumb. Just go to sleep.
The idea is that when the sun goes down to start it when you use your phone.
Still don't see the point.
Then read the article I linked to in a comment below for the reasoning. The idea is that watching a bright screen with the usual color (bluish) in the evening alters production of a chemical in our brain that makes getting to sleep more difficult, when you do shut off the device and try to sleep. Using a more yellowish color doesn't do the same thing.
The blue light messes with humans circadian rhythm. Makes it harder to fall asleep. This takes the blue out.
Not completely, but most of the blue is removed.
Yes, annoying yellowish color. Rather turn down the brightness.
I do both.
No but I will
No i have an ipod touch. It doesnt have that feature
Yes, but most of the features in 9.3.1 are only useable on iPhones and iPads
Yeah it's awesome.
Ah, so that's why Apple pulled all the apps that could do that from the store: they wanted to take credit for it themselves.
I found a few, with a search on "night screen." They seem to be mostly just browsers, not system-wide dimmers.
I do turn it off if I want to edit photos. Blue light causes health issues & I struggle with insomnia, so I'm grateful for the option to warm up the screen between subset & sunrise. I've only had it turned on this past week but I am finding it easier to fall asleep.
My mobile browser had it before Apple, and I love it. I've been wishing that it was device-wide.
Hmm. I'll have to look into it.
It's awesome! Thanks!
Nope. I have a 5c which isn't supported.
Same here too
Yes. It looks orange for a moment when you turn it on, but your eyes quickly adjust. I like it.
My husband does. I decided it was annoying when it changed the background while I was reading, so I turned it off.
Lol wat? If I want to sleep there's an off button 😎 What am I not getting?
Yes, but I think praet was being sarcastic. "If I want to sleep, there's an off button." 😜
No. I've been using "Invert Colors" (Night Mode) day and night for over a year for readability, since I'm legally blind.
I do. I turned it on on both my iPad and iPhone as soon as I updated the iOS. I like it.
I just started using it last night. I like it, so far.
I keep putting off updating - maybe I'll do that tomorrow since I'm off work and I want to get some things accomplished.
Although having a night feature sounds like yet another way of encouraging me to use my phone in bed, which is a habit I'd like to break!
