iOS 9.3 beta 5 disables Night Shift in Low Power Mode

Along with new betas for watchOS, tvOS and OS X, Apple seeded iOS 9.3 beta 5 to registered developers. The first beta of iOS 9.3 was released to developers and public beta testers in early January since then we’ve seen a bunch of betas pushed out, bringing us up to beta 5 today, the new beta includes some interesting changes before its (expected) official release later this month.

One of the flagship features of iOS 9.3 is the new Night Shift mode, if you’re unfamiliar with it, it basically changes the color temperature of your devices screen, giving it a ‘orange-y’ tint, which in turn reduces eye strain when using your device in the evening.

In iOS 9.3 beta 5, we have a new toggle switch for Night Shift, going into Settings > Display and Brightness > Night Shift, you’ll see the new switch labelled ‘Manually Enable Until Tomorrow’ which does exactly that.

Another change in the new beta is that Night Shift will disable when your device is in Low Power mode, so you’ll see Night Shift toggles greyed out in the Settings and Control Center. Previously users could manually re-enable Night Shift mode when they were in Low Power mode, but no longer with the new beta.

With iOS 9.3 beta 5 you’ll now be able to turn on Night Mode until a specified time when tapping its Control Center toggle. Previously, you only had two options, ‘Turn On For Now’ and ‘Turn On Until Tomorrow’
There are also a few other little changes in the Night Shift preferences pane.
