I was exited when they were working on Night Shift which helps with sleep, as I use Flux on my computers and its really good and the fact that there is no iOS apps unless you jail break the device.


I installed the 9.3 update within 3 minutes on my iPad Mini 1, iPhone 5c and iPod Touch 5th Gen, spent a few minutes trying to find the setting then boom looking online it's not compatible only by one model up! Due to hardware requirements apparently but honestly, I thought Apple was working at getting functionality across more current devices on iOS9.

I read about this just as I was starting to download 9.3 and thought it sounded gimmicky and silly. But have had it running on the iPad for the past couple of nights and have been surprised that I really do like it.


I have the 'warm' dialled right up and it has the effect that Apple touted - more restful on the eyes at night - pick up the iPad in the middle of the night and there's not that piercing glare. Would not have bet on liking or wanting it.


Also supposed to be more restful prior to sleep - probably, but I'm not so concerned about that.

Mine isn't working properly. It's not turning back to normal display in the mornings. I had it set to sunset/sunrise when the problem started occurring, then I changed it to an actual time schedule, but it's still failing to turn off. I got so annoyed with it I just disabled it, which is a shame because it is much more soothing on the eyes in the evening. Hopefully it'll settle after the next OS update.
