Set up Night Shift in iOS

One of the nice features of iOS 9 is the introduction of Night Shift. You turn on Night Shift to protect your Circadian rhythm, and to make it easier to fall asleep. Night Shift gradually reduces the amount of blue light emanating from your device as it gets more dark outside, and makes the settings normal in the morning. It protects your eyes and prevents your iPhone or iPad from telling your eyes that it is daytime.

Enable Night Shift


Go to Settings and tap on Display and Brightness.

NightShift EnableNightShift Enable

Tap on Night Shift.


Tap on the toggle next to Scheduled. Turn it on. Choose the schedule, I have Sunset to Sunrise as the period when Night Shift is enabled.


You can achieve the same thing through the Control Center. By swiping up, from the bottom of your iPhone or iPad screen, you can bring up Control Center. Tap on the icon in the middle to turn Night Shift on. If you have it scheduled, the icon shows the state it is in, the daylight icon is different from the Night Shift enabled icon.

Night Shift is a great feature on the iOS devices. You can get the same thing for your macOS devices if you install an application called f.lux.

Both Night Shift and f.lux are highly recommended.
