If you have already set up your iPhone or iPad with a six-digit passcode and now want to use a four-digit passcode on it, follow this guide.

However, the new Night mode is limited only to the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro which is a bit of a shame. If you own an older iPhone like the iPhone XR, iPhone XS or even the iPhone 7 though, you can get a Night mode-like feature on your device as well.
