Apple is always providing its users with new features so that they can use their iPhone more efficiently. There are countless features that Apple has provided; it’s hard to understand all the features at once. Today we are going to talk about one of the features that is True Tone. Although it is not available in all iPhone series, the newer versions of iPhone can certainly take advantage of this feature.
WHAT IS TRUE TONE?
True Tone is an “advanced” sensor feature that changes the brightness and colors of the screen based on the lighting conditions around us. True Tone is meant to make the screen color look more natural, and it does. True Tone is intended to take the ambient light and temperature into account before adjusting the color, intensity and brightness of the phone’s display.
Apple believes that this would make the screen appear more natural while also reducing eyestrain. Depending on the color temperature of the ambient light, the display adjusts the color profile of the display by adding a yellowish tint. It helps minimize blue light, but not as much as night mode, which literally turns the screen yellow. Warmer colors on your screen are caused by warmer lighting in the environment. The effect is similar to what happens when light hits a sheet of paper, and Apple claims the feature is meant to reduce eye strain.
HOE DOES TRUE TONE WORK?
True Tone is a display technology used by Apple in its Macs, iPads, and iPhones. The system measures ambient light, color and brightness with powerful sensors. It then uses an algorithm to tailor your display’s output to those characteristics.
The only way to understand it is to imagine it as a book. It will be difficult to read a book on white paper if you are in a room with yellow light. However, if the paper was yellowish and the font color was adjusted to contrast it, your eyes would be able to read more easily.
TrueToon does this. If the room has white light, the screen will become whiter, and if the room has black light, the screen will become blacker.
WHICH DEVICE SUPPORTS TRUE TONE?
True Tone was first launched with the 9.7-inch iPad Pro in 2016 and has gradually spread across Apple’s iPhone lineup. True Tone is currently supported by a small number of devices, but Apple has expanded the technology to both the iPhone and iPad. True Tone is supported by the following devices: iPhone 8 and later, iPad Pro 12.9-inch (3rd generation), iPad Pro 11-inch, iPad Pro 12.9-inch (2nd generation), iPad Pro 10.5 -inch, iPad Pro (9.7-inch), iPad Air (3rd generation), and iPad mini (5th generation)
