Earlier today, a keen eyed Redditor spotted on the iOS 9.3 preview page from Apple that the company plans on implementing a quick toggle for Night Shift in Control Center with the upcoming version of the OS. This functionality is currently missing in the first beta of iOS 9.3, which was released late last week.
Night Shift is a new feature in iOS 9.3 that automatically changes the color tone of the display depending on the time and geolocation to reduce strain on your eyes and help you in falling asleep quickly. The feature will be available for all iOS devices powered by a 64-bit chipset.
Now, corroborating the unintentional leak from Apple, is the code in springboard in the first beta of iOS 9.3, which further confirms Apple’s intentions to add a Night Shift toggle in Control Center with the upcoming iOS update.
While the screenshot from Apple’s website does give us an idea of where the Night Shift toggle will be located in Control Center on an iPad, it is unclear where the company plans on putting this toggle on the smaller Control Center of the iPhone.
It is likely that Apple will enable the Night Shift toggle in Control Center in one of the future beta releases of iOS 9.3.
Thanks for the tip Sebastian!
