Many studies showed that the long exposure to bright blue light during night time can affect the circadian rhythms which make it harder to sleep. Blue light is the light on the spectrum which makes the computers, phones, tablets, and iPads look bright which is great during the day as it copies the bright morning. These blue wavelengths also wake us up. But blue light is less desirable when it is night time. Studies have shown that the blue light disrupts the bodies’ biological clock and makes it harder to fall asleep.
Night Shift(is just alternative to f.lux) feature uses the iOS devices’ locations to determine the time of sunset and automatically shifts the screen light display. It cuts down the blue light exposure. With Night Shift mode, the screen looks bright yellow which is easier on the eyes and circadian rhythm. It returns automatically to its regular light settings in the morning.
