When enabled, Night Shift is a feature that uses your device's clock and geolocation to determine whether it is sunset, and then automatically shifts the colors on your iOS device to the warmer end of the color spectrum to help you sleep better during the night. This feature is based on studies showing that blue lights and hues inhibit sleep at night.
