iPhone True Tone Display feature.

Another new feature coming with the 2017 iPhone flagships is the True Tone Display. Although it might not seem like a big deal, your eyes will highly appreciate it in the long rung. But what is True Tone Display you might ask? Well, it’s a similar feature with the Night Shift mode. It helps your iPhone to automatically adjust the color temperature of its display in function of the ambient lightning. True Tone uses the device’s front facing sensors to measure the ambience’s light color and brightness. It then uses the data to modify the display, to make it more readable and less straining for your eyes.

The iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus aren’t the first Apple devices equipped with this feature. The iPad Pro already has it, and users highly appreciate it. The difference between True Tone Display and Night Shift mode, is that the first uses information from sensor and adjusts the display accordingly, while Night Shift relies on the current time and your geographical location to determine when it’s best used. Night Shift is only able to adjust the brightness and display color only to a warmer temperature in order to improve low light reading, while True Tone is much more accurate and versatile.

How To Enable True Tone Display
The iPhone models that support this feature have it enabled out of the box. However, if you want to double-check the setup, or if you wish to turn it off, perform the following steps:
1. Open the Settings app from the Home Screen.
2. Tap on Display & Brightness.
3. Tweak the True Tone Display setting.
Fact: The Night Shift settings are available in the same menu.
