Thread: iPhone screen not dark enough for you?

  1. #1

    Default iPhone screen not dark enough for you?

    This is great!! We obviously know the benefits of having sub-lumen flashlights for nighttime use. But what about your phone? Whenever I check it in the middle of the night, even the lowest setting on my iPhone is a bit bright, even with night shift enabled. So here's a way to knock it down even further.

    GOOD TINT!

    Iíve been using this feature for a few years. Itís really helpful. But it doesnít dim the LED themselves, it applies a grey color to the screen, like a filter. It works, though.

    Me too. No power savings but a good feature nonetheless.

    If you use the Kindle App, select black background with gray lettering, you can get a sub 1 Lumen output. The only catch is being able to hit the home button with the app already open...

    Wow. Thanks for this! Been an iOS user for years and never heard about this hack.
    Who needs to see the light at the end of the tunnel when you have friends on CPF?

    Yeah, I never would have figured this out by myself! I finally googled "iphone screen too bright" after too many middle-of-the-night phone checks and getting blinded. Even on the lowest setting.
    GOOD TINT!

    Maybe it does, but with a different shortcut? This is an accessibility feature and is included on all iOS.
