Apple’s new version of its mobile operating system, iOS 9.3, comes packed with a features called “Night Shift” and it aims to reduce eye strain when viewing your iPhone or iPad in the dark.

It’s also designed to get rid of that bright blue light emitted by your device at night that impacts your sleeping habits.

Night Shift uses your iOS device’s clock and geolocation to determine when it’s sunset in your location.

Then it automatically shifts the colors in your display to the warmer end of the spectrum, making it easier on your eyes.

In the morning, it returns the display to its regular settings.

  • Select Night Shift to see all of your options.
  • There’s a switch to manually turn on the feature, or you can schedule it to run by toggling the Schedule switch and setting the time.
  • Using the slider, you can adjust how drastic the color change is, from Less Warm to More Warm.
