This year, Apple added its True Tone display technology to its iPhone and iPad. The new display technology dynamically adjusts the color temperature of your device’s display to match the lighting around you. On the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, True Tone is enabled by default and offers better contrast for reading. But you can disable it on your device and manually turn it back on.

Before we get started, keep in mind that True Tone is exclusive on Apple’s newer iPhone and iPad models, including the second-gen 12.9 iPad Pro, 10.5 inch iPad Pro, 9.7 inch iPad Pro, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus
