As the sun sets, Night Shift Mode on iPhone will gradually adjust your phone’s screen to yellowish hues instead of the usual bright blue. Studies have shown that exposure to blue light at night time is disruptive to your circadian rhythm and is bad for your health. Incidentally, most of our phones, tablets, and laptops emit blue light. Blue light boosts our attention during the day, but it interferes with our ability to wind down and get ready for sleep at night. This is the reason why Apple introduced Night Shift Mode on iPhone. This tutorial explains how to use this feature on your iOS device.
