Is your iPhone’s display too bright? Here’s how to dim it lower than usual

You’re in bed in the middle of the night, scrolling aimlessly through social media on your iPhone. When you go to dim the display because it is a little too light, you find that it is already set to the lowest brightness level. If you’re straining your eyes, you could just keep scrolling, but that might make it harder for you to fall slumber and cause headaches. Fortunately, there are a few iOS features that can assist you in reducing the brightness of your screen further than the default options permit.

This tutorial will cover a number of built-in features that can darken your screen more than you might have imagined. No need to strain your eyes or annoy others with your iPhone’s blazingly brilliant display.

You probably shouldn’t use all of these features at once, so try different combinations until you find one that works for you and the lighting in your surroundings before we get started.

1. Enable Night Shift to make your display warmer

Using the internal clock and location of your phone, the Night Shift function instantly adjusts your display to warmer colours that are easier on the eyes. The monitor resets to its default settings every morning. It can be activated through the Control Center or your Settings.

Method 1: Arrangements

Select Night Shift under Settings > Display & Brightness. From here, you can schedule the function for a specific time or set it to be enabled all day and turned off in the morning. Using the slider at the foot of the page, you can also change the colour temperature; you can select between less warm and more warm.

Method 2: Control Center

To open the Control Center, swipe down from the top-right corner. To switch it on and off, tap the Night Shift button while holding down the Brightness icon.

2. Reduce white point to bring down intensity of bright colors

To change how strongly colours appear on your iPhone screen, you can also lower the white point. Consider using this setting to slightly muffle bright colours since they are particularly illuminating at night.

Turn on Reduce White Point under Accessibility > Display & Text Size in Settings. You can use the marker that will show beneath the setting to customise the brightness of the bright colours.

3. Use Zoom to add low light filter

There is a method to reduce the display brightness only if you don’t care about warmer or less intense colours and are only interested in lowering the brightness. You can add a low light filter to your display to make it darker than normal by using the Zoom accessibility feature.

Make sure that the Low Light choice is selected under Zoom Filter in the Settings application’s Accessibility > Zoom section. If you’d like to use Zoom, you can turn it on here, but the more convenient method is to triple-click the side icon from any location on your phone.

Even if your brightness is already at its lowest, when Zoom is enabled, your phone will automatically add the low light filter to your display, rendering it darker. On your device, a tiny floating circle will show up to let you know Zoom is on. The device can be hidden by tapping it. Simply triple-click the side icon once more to turn Zoom off.
