Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has confirmed that one of the notable new features to come with iOS 9.3 beta 1 is the Night Shift. The feature is designed in a way that cuts down the amount of blue light emitted by an iOS device in the evening. As noted by Apple, studies have shown that blue light has the ability to negatively impact sleep as it alters the cardiac rhythm in the body. The shifting of the device’s color display makes it appear warmer.
The Night Shift toggle will be next to the brightness slider in the Control Center. There will be two options available: “Turn on for Now” and “Turn on until Tomorrow.”
It is possible that Night Shift will be activated on 64-bit iOS devices running iOS 9.3. Night Shift could also be made available on the Display and Brightness section in settings.
Though there is a high probability that the Control Center Night Shift option will be available in a future 9.3 beta, it is still not clear whether it will be an iPhone only feature or if iPad will have it as well. Control Center on the iPad would be much larger than on the iPhone since the iPad has a larger display.
Most likely, Apple will move the top rows of the iPhone Control Center closer together so as to create room for the Night Shift button. Many users use their iPhones before bed, making the new feature quite useful.
