Apple will launch iOS 9.3 with new light mode to help you sleep

Apple may soon launch iOS 9.3 for iPhones and iPads with a new light mode which should help you sleep at night after using your iOS device.

The upcoming iOS 9.3 will let your iPhone or iPad detect when it is night time with the help of the gadget's clock and location and then turn off the blue parts of light emitting from the gadget's display. This way, says Apple, your eyes won't be exposed to bright blue light and you will be able to sleep comfortably.

“Many studies have shown that exposure to bright blue light in the evening can affect your circadian rhythms and make it harder to fall asleep,” says Apple's webpage which talks about this feature.

While iOS 9.3 will turn off blue light emitting from your gadget's display after sunset, it will turn the light on after sunrise in a way that you won't be able to feel the difference in your gadget's display. This feature will work probably the same way as Ambient light settings in Android phones.

If Apple brings in this technology along with iOS 9.3 as well, then your iPhone or iPad will be able to read your eyes and gauge if they're confortable with the light emitting from their displays.
