Night Shift is a major new feature with iOS 9.3 (so get updating pronto), a display-based setting that lets you warm up the colour on your phone or ipad screen on a schedule at night.

If you're wondering what the point of that is, it cuts down on blue light exposure, changing the colour temperature on your phone's display to reflect the time of day. It's reeeal fancy.

When Night Shift is activated, your screen will look the usual bright white with a blue-based lighting scheme during the day, but as the sun sets, it will fade into a warmer, yellow tone that's easier on your eyes and your sleep pattern.

Blue wavelengths WAKE you up, boots your attention and make your body think it's time to start the day - so obviously that's not ideal at night. 

Studies show that looking at a blue screen in the evening or at night can totally confuse your biological clock, meaning that the 24 hour day/night light schedule that humans run on gets all messed up. Elminate the blue and you'll get a better night's sleep.

How genius is that? You can schedule Night Shift to work with sunrise and sunset, or your own schedule, so here's the steps to follow to get it activated:

  1. Open up the Settings app.
  2. Scroll to the Display & Brightness section. This is where the Night Shift controls are located.
  3. Tap on "Night Shift."
  4. Tap on the "Manually Enable Until Tomorrow" toggle.
  5. Adjust screen temperature as desired.
  6. Set your schedule.

SLEEP WELL.

Ooh how cool. Let us know if you're gonna be making use of this one, we're over on Twitter @Sugarscape.
