Apple is in the process of adding a new mode called “Night Shift” for the next version of its mobile operating system, iOS 9.3.
When selected, the screen turns from blue light to a warmer setting. It works by detecting a users locations and turning on automatically at night.
The new feature comes at a time when studies have shown that exposure to blue light at night can impact our circadian rhythm, leading to disrupted sleep.
Apple released the beta version of iOS 9.3 on Monday. Currently, it’s only available to developers.
Along with Night Shift, Apple iOS 9.3 also allows kids who are using iPads at school to log into their personal profile from any shared classroom device. A centralized admin account will let teachers control all their student’s IDs and manage things like courses and books.
Other new features include improved personalization in the News app, better integration between the Apple Watch and Health app, and new Car Play features.
