The MacFormat team debates the hot Apple issues of the day, using their iPhones of course!
“DO YOU WORRY ABOUT GADGETS AFFECTING YOUR EYESIGHT?”
I use my phone a lot in the evening, so I turned on Night Shift as soon as it was introduced. It really helps the screen feel less harsh.
Yeah, it’s a really nice feature. I recommend friends and family try it out for a while, even if the orange tint feels odd initially.
I have a friend who has an Android app for the same purpose, but the tint makes its way into screenshots too. Night Shift doesn’t, and I’m less conscious of it after this long.
I find its all-day-long, ambient light-based counterpart, True Tone, truly indispensible. Turn that off a few times during a day to test how much easier on the eyes it makes things.
None of my devices have True Tone Do you think it’s worth upgrading for?
I feel hypocritical, given I replaced my 1st-gen iPad Pro within a year largely to gain it. But for most people, given prices, probably not.
That’s fair – there’s much more to iPad Pro than that. But it’s encouraging that Apple is rolling it out in many of its new devices.
Recently, researchers said blue light, which these features limit, may be a bigger issue than thought. More on that soon!
