How To: Disable True Tone [iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus]

Apple unveiled its latest flagships last month. They introduced a display feature that was so far exclusive to This year’s iPad Pro, called “True Tone” display. True Tone uses device’s front facing sensors to automatically adjust the white balance of the display to match the ambient lighting. Thus, this causes lesser eye strain and the information displayed is more legible. This feature causes the white balance to change, thus, prompting users to disable true tone. However, True Tone is different from Night Shift mode found on iOS. Night Shift mode is merely a blue-light filter when you use your phone late-night.Disable True Tone

With the True Tone display on, your screen might look odd while running certain applications and games. Also, not everyone might adapt quickly to the dynamic change in white balance. If you think the new True Tone display isn’t for your device, let’s take a look at how to disable True Tone on iPhone 8 and iPhone X:
