All iPhone looks stunning when out of the box. However, after you use it for a long time and in a variety of lighting conditions, the screen and body will lose their luster. So, improving your iPhone’s display is important. Here are 7 settings that can make your iPhone clearer on your eyes.
We will start with the brightness. All you need is swiping up from the bottom of the screen or swipe down from the top-right corner on iPhone X to launch the Control Center. From there, edit the brightness slider to get your display brighter.
With this feature, you won’t need to turn up the brightness when you go out or you’re back indoors. iOS comes with the auto-brightness feature, which allows adjusting the brightness of the display based on the current lighting conditions in.
Enabling auto-brightness also means you are free to the Control Center for adjusting your display’s brightness. However, if you usually work in the brightly lit environments, it will turn up your display brightness, which will drain your battery faster.
From iOS 11version, Apple has moved the auto-brightness setting. It no longer stays in Display & Brightness page in Settings. You will need to navigate to Settings > General > Accessibility > Display Accommodations to find for Auto-Brightness feature.
The Night Shift mode changes the colors of your display to the warmer during the evening hours. This helps in getting rid of the blue light, which can help you get a better sleep.
You can easily schedule Night Shift from sunset to sunrise or schedule it a certain time. There is a slider that allows adjusting the level of the warmness. You can find the Night Shift’s settings by heading to Settings > Display & Brightness > Night Shift.
If your iPhone supports 3D Touch, you can manually enable Night Shift on the brightness slider from the Control Center.

Reduce White Point
If you’re too sensitive with the bright light, you can find another setting on the Reduce White Point in Display Accommodations, which might be helpful for you in case you find reducing the brightness of your phone’s display until it becomes difficult to read. Using Reduce White Point, you can easily cut down the intensity of bright colors without changing your display brightness. Simply turn it on and use the slider to adjust the effect.
This display setting can help to balance between the convenience and your battery life. With this feature, you can choose the length of time for turning on your iPhone’s screen before it locks itself and switches off the display. Navigate to Settings > Display & Brightness > Auto-Lock and set a time from 30 seconds and 5 minutes or choose Never if you don’t bother the battery life.
Text Size and Bold Text
There are two settings that can make the text more legible. Simply head to the Settings> Display & Brightness and you will see two options: Text Size and Bold Text. The former allows you to increase or decrease the size of the text for apps supporting Dynamic Type. While The Bold Text feature will make the text more legible when putting it in bold.
Those who are owning an iPhone 8/8 Plus or iPhone X can activate the True Tone feature, which will automatically adjust the white balance of the display based on the current lighting conditions to get more accurate colors. You can enable the True Tone feature from the Display & Brightness section in Settings app. Note the switch and toggle it on and off by or you can 3D touch the brightness slider from the Control Center.
