How to Start Night Shift at a Different Time on an iPhone 11

The Night Shift feature on your iPhone 11 allows you to easily adjust the display of the device so that the lighting and screen brightness is more appropriate for the time of day.

This can help to reduce eye strain and generally just make it easier to look at your phone screen without getting sore eyes or a headache.

If you’ve never adjusted Night Shift on your device then it probably turns on in the evening, then turns off in the morning. For a lot of iPhone users this makes the most sense, as the screen brightness is mainly adjusting based on the lighting outside.

But your needs might dictate that Night Shift should start or end at a different time, so you may be wondering how to change that. Our guide below will show you how to start and end Night Shift at an earlier or later time on your iPhone 11.
