Bright colors are feast for your eyes at first, but after some time, it gives your eyes stress, causing eye strain. While using iPhone and iPad, your eyes are constantly exposed to that some bright colours of different apps you use. You can adjust these colors by controlling brightness of your iPhone/iPad’s screen. But the white point in your iOS device can always damage your eyes and spoil your iPhone experience.
Note that there is some difference between controlling brightness and white point. Reduction in brightness will turn your phone screen darker; while lowering white point will hijack the vividness of phone screen. There are two solutions to this issue: either you cover your eyes with some protective gear or you just reduce the white point in your iPhone and iPad.
Thanks to improved Accessibility features in the latest iOS 10. Now you can easily control that white point in your iOS devices only if your device is updated.
How to Control or Reduce White Point in iOS 10 on iPhone/iPad
Step #1: Open Settings app on your iPhone/iPad.
Step #2: Now tap on General.
Step #3: Tap on Accessibility.
Step #4: Under the VISION section, you will find Display Accommodations; tap on it.
Step #5: Reduce White Point option will be toggled OFF; you need to toggle this option ON.
Step #6: Under the Reduce White Point option, you will see a horizontal line with controller.
Step #7: With the help of that round shaped controller, you can adjust the intensity of bright colors on your iPhone or iPad.
Now your iPhone or iPad screen will turn friendly to your eyes. You will immediately experience a soothing screen that doesn’t exert stress on your eyes.
While you are at Reduce White Point, you can also explore Magnifier feature right above. Apple has taken special care of differently abled people, who can’t read small fonts.
With the help of Magnifier feature (under the same VISION section in Accessibility), you can use this feature. Basically, Magnifier allows you to use your iPhone or iPad’s camera to quickly blow up things. Upon enabling this feature, you need to triple-click the Home button to start Magnifier.
Hope this information is useful to use. Apple always brings helpful updates and upgrades for its users. Every year, during its WWDC, this brand invites the developer community from across the world to showcase its innovations. This year, Apple has introduced many incremental updates in its WWDC 2016. Magnifier and Display Accommodations were not there earlier; you will find this in the latest iOS 10. Though these are just incremental updates, the two features can certainly make difference as they can create a positive impact on your eyes – the most important and delicate body organ.
