Does iPhone night shift mitigate negative effects of smartphone use on sleep outcomes in emerging adults? - ScienceDirect:
Across our full study sample, there were no differences in sleep outcomes attributable to Night Shift. For individuals who regularly obtained adequate sleep, abstaining from screen use resulted in better quality sleep than did phone use with Night Shift enabled.
I feel like this makes sense?
The whole Night Shift thing seemed like a Lifehacker-type of gimmick to me… “This one trick will let you keep doing the all the stuff you’re doing without actually making any changes.”
Call me crazy, but I’d guess the real problem with being on your phone right up until the minute you go to sleep is not the color of the screen, but rather the fact that YOU ARE ON YOUR PHONE RIGHT UP UNTIL THE MINUTE YOU GO TO SLEEP.
