With iOS 9.3, Apple introduced a new feature called Night Shift. For those unfamiliar, Night Shift basically changes the color temperature of your screen to a warmer one. This supposedly reduces the amount of blue light emitted by your display which has been found to interfere with sleeping patterns.
However Night Shift becomes disabled when the iPhone/iPad enters low power mode, a battery saving feature that Apple introduced not too long ago. Unfortunately for some reason, Apple decided to make Night Shift and Low Power mode exclusively independent of one another, meaning that when Low Power mode was on, Night Shift would not work.
The good news is that in the upcoming iOS 9.3.2 update, it seems that Apple has decided to address that issue server-side. This means that if your phone were in Night Shift mode and you enter into Low Power mode, the feature will continue to work and you should still be able to get a good night’s rest.
Of course having a good sleep has more to do than just reducing the amount of blue light from your displays, but we suppose every little bit helps. In the meantime there’s no word on when iOS 9.3.2 will be released, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled for it.
