Apple allows Night Shift to work with Low Power Mode in latest iOS 9.3.2 beta

Apple iOS 9.3 Beta-3

Apple has once again allowed Night Shift to work alongside Low Power Mode within its latest iOS 9.3.2 beta for registered developers. The change will almost certainly (we hope!) make its way into the final iOS 9.3.2 update for all users.

When Apple first introduced Night Shift inside early iOS 9.3 betas, it worked just fine while Low Power Mode was active. However, the company changed that before iOS 9.3 was made available to the public, so activating the later automatically disables the blue light filter.

We presumed this was because Night Shift might have some kind of impact on battery life, which you obviously don’t want when you have Low Power Mode switched on. But Apple has decided to revert to its original approach in iOS 9.3.2 beta 2.

Those who have installed this update, which rolled out to developers on Wednesday, will have the ability to use Night Shift and Low Power Mode together. If you have Night Shift mode activated, then, enabling Low Power Mode will no longer turn it off.

We’re hoping that this change will make its way into the final iOS 9.3.2 update, and that it wasn’t just a mistake. However, we’ll have to wait and see if it’s still there inside the next iOS 9.3.2 beta, which is likely to arrive in a couple of weeks.
