Since iOS 7.1, Apple’s mobile operating system has included a feature that allows you to manually adjust the white point of the screen to your liking. A white dot, also known as a reference white, defines the white color in the use of the devices.

Lowering the white dot makes the bright colors of your iPhone, iPad or iPod more intense. In contrast, increasing the white point reduces the intensity of the bright colors, thus helping, for example, increase battery life.

The ability to manually adjust the white dot to match, for example, the white surface of your room is particularly useful for owners of devices that lack Apple’s True Tone technology.

How to adjust the intensity of bright colors on iPhone and iPad

It is very simple, just follow the path Settings> General> Accessibility> Display settings> Reduce white point, and activate it. Now you must drag the slider to make the bright colors less intense. Reducing the intensity of the screen by increasing the white point is multiple ways proven to save battery on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod.

True Tone is different from Reduce White Point

What exactly is the difference between True Tone and Reduce White Point?

True Tone is the Apple display technology that is currently on the iPad Pro models, which automatically changes the white point of the screen, and at the same time adjusts the brightness to compensate for the lighting in the environment.

The Reduce White Point option does not take advantage of the device’s ambient light sensors such as True Tone. As a result, you can not tell your device to adjust the white point on your screen automatically to match the current lighting conditions of a room. Simply put, if the lighting conditions change, you will need to repeat these steps to manually recalibrate the intensity of the bright colors for the current ambient lighting.
