Do the colors on your iPhone change every night? It may not be a very noticeable difference, but it’s kind of like a yellowish hue that washes over the screen. Or did your iPhone recently start looking this way, and you can’t figure out why? It is likely due to a setting on the iPhone called Night Shift. The iPhone’s Night Shift mode is meant to be easier on your eyes, thereby making it a little easier to fall asleep at night.
But if it’s the middle of the day, or if you would simply prefer not to use Night Shift, then you may be looking for a way to turn it off. Fortunately it is a setting over which you have complete control. Our tutorial will show you where to find the Night Shift setting so that you can disable it and keep your iPhone at its standard color combination for the entire day.
