How to Enable and Use Color Filters in iOS 10 on iPhone or iPad

With the release of iOS 10, Apple has apparently revamped its Accessibility feature for iPhone and iPad. It seems that Apple has taken care of users’ most delicate part, i.e. eyes. This is why Apple has given a special feature in Display Accommodations to Reduce White Point in iOS 10.

‘Color Filters’ is a new feature added to Accessibility kitty by Apple in iOS 10. This feature helps you view your screen in a soothing brightness that is not harmful to your eyes. As a matter of fact, Accessibility offers some of the best facilities for users. You can explore many features under sections like VISION, GRAYSCALE, INTERACTION, HEARING, MEDIA & LEARNING.

Now let’s check how you can use Color Filters on your iPhone/iPad enabled by iOS 10.

Accessibility offers some of the great features for users, who have poor eyesight. They should explore features like VocieOver, which speaks items on the screen; other useful feature is Zoom, which magnifies entire iPhone/iPad screen so that users can get a better picture while interacting with their devices.

Among many other cool features, I like AssistiveTouch. This virtual button floats on your iPhone or iPad screen and works same as the physical button. If you ask me why anybody should use AssistiveTouch, let me tell you that iPhone and iPad’s physical button may get damaged over a period of time. To replace this button, you will have to shell out many bucks. Therefore, AssistiveTouch is a better option in the event of iPhone Home button not working or unresponsive.

You should now explore entire Accessibility feature on your iPhone/iPad. Find out the best features and start using all to make your life more comfortable.
