How To Setup Night Shift Feature On iOS 9.3 Device

We offer useful guide on how to setup Night Shift on iOS 9.3 device. As you know two days back Apple seeded the first beta for the next iOS 9.3 public release to developers just a month after iOS 9.2 firmware version was launched to public. This recent update brings quite a lot of new features including new 3D Touch options for some system apps, though the biggest new feature has to be Night Shift. It force iOS to change the screen’s gamma value in order to make the colors appear warmer or cooler. So let's take a closer look on how this new Apple feature specs and how to setup it on your iDevice.

How To Setup Night Shift On iOS 9.3 iPhone

Step 1. To setup Night Shift on iOS 9.3 device you need to navigate to a new section inside Settings > Display & Brightness. 

Step 2. To enable this option, you need to flip the new Blue Light Reduction button to the ON position. “When enabled, Blue Light Reduction allows your eyes to relax so that falling asleep is easier,” reads the feature’s description.

Step 3. Your iOS device will shift the colors in the display to the warmer end of the spectrum in order to cut down on the amount of blue light that you see at night. You can also drag the slider to shift the color scheme manually toward warmer or cooler. It is important to note here that when Night Shift mode is enabled on your iDevice taking screenshot will result in regular-looking picture.

Step 4. Using your iOS device’s clock and location services Night Shift mode determines when it’s sunset in your location. In the morning, Night Shift mode will return the display to its regular settings. You can also use custom schedules and cherry-pick the times when iOS will turn on and off this mode. Just click on Schedule in Settings > Display & Brightness to disable scheduling, pick automatic scheduling (From Sunset to Sunrise) or use the Custom Schedule option to pick the times that work best for you.

Night Shift mode only works on 64-bit devices (hardware released in 2013 and later): 

  • iPod touch 6G
  • iPhone 5s
  • iPhone 6
  • iPhone 6s
  • iPhone 6 Plus
  • iPhone 6s Plus
  • iPad Air
  • iPad Air 2
  • iPad mini 2
  • iPad mini 3
  • iPad mini 4
  • iPad Pro

All other iOS devices don't support this Apple's new feature as they use 32-bit chipsets:

  • iPhone 5
  • iPhone 5c
  • iPod touch 5G
  • iPad mini
  • iPad 2
  • iPad 3
  • iPad 4

We recommend all owners of older iOS devices that will not be getting the Night Shift feature with iOS 9.3 to jailbreak their device and use one of the many similar apps built by the jailbreaking community.
