Night Shift has become one of my favorites apps for iOS 9.3. If you have not read all about it already, then you may want to check this article out.

Night Shift and Low Power Mode are two of the most popular features in Apple’s latest OS, iOS 9.3.1. Night Shift allows night owls to stay up reading iPhoneHacks articles without lighting up their entire room. Low Power Mode adds up to 3 more hours of battery life for those stuck without a charger. Needless to say, these are both great features, but currently, cannot be enabled at the same time. This was not always the case.
We all need to hide something. It might be super important documents, account information you don’t want to share with anyone or maybe even those selfies.

The feature, which is turned on by default, is designed to make the browsing experience seamless on iPhone even when the Wi-Fi connection wasn’t stable. But for some, it didn’t go so well.
