A feature exclusive to the iPad Pro, True Tone has made its way to the iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. It’s a simple feature that adapts the tone of the device’s display to match your ambient environment. For example, if you are in a room lit up by warm lights, then your display’s tone will match up, giving you a slightly warm feel. It’s a cool little feature but might not be for everyone since it can become an obstruction if you are doing color accurate work, or just don’t like the display having a mind of its own. So, in today’s guide we will show you how to turn the feature off, or on, depending on your needs.

Whenever you flint between different places with varying lighting conditions, the tone of your display will remain consistent, or change accordingly, if you opted to turn the feature off or on, respectively.

Personally I leave the feature turned on at all times as it makes staring at the display far less straining. I do understand that I end up sacrificing color accuracy in a lot of cases, but there’s nothing better than a display that does not end up poking your eyeballs after an extended period of usage. At least that’s what I believe.
