Night Shift and Low Power Mode are among the most exciting features added to iOS 9. These new features were met with a virtual round of applause from all iPhone and iPad users. Previously, you can run Night Shift and Low Power Mode simultaneously on your iOS devices, but that feature was removed without explanation in iOS 9.3.1 update.
In iOS 9.3.1, you will be asked to turn off Low Power Mode if you want to turn on Night Shift. However, nothing is impossible, and we have figured out a new way that once again lets you use both Night Shift Mode and Low Power Mode on your iOS devices. Follow these steps:
- Step 1: Activate Low Power Mode via Settings > Battery.
- Step 2: Start Siri and says “Enable Night Shift”. Siri will rely: “In order to turn on Night Shift, I’ll have to turn off Low Power Mode. Shall I continue?”
- Step 3: Reply “Yes” and press the home button before your response is confirmed. Then you will hear Siri’s confirmation beep.
- Step 4: Unlock your iPhone and if you press the home button correctly, you will notice Low Power Mode and Night Shift are enabled at the same time on your iPhone.
Note: You will see the Night Shift switch in both Control Center and Settings > Display & Brightness will be greyed out. It doesn’t matter, as the color temperature of the screen will be changed to a warmer hue when Night Shift is enabled.
