Ever setting the option Screen and Brightness, in the settings of our device iOS, have you come across the option True tone? Do you know what it is for? We are going to tell you in a very simple way so that you understand it. Also, we are going to give you our opinion on whether to activate or deactivate it.
With every new iOS, those of Cupertino add more customization options to our iPhone and iPad. Today it’s time to talk about True tone, An option that many do not understand what it is for. We are going to try to explain it to you so that you understand it.
Before saying anything we want to clarify one thing. Although the colors adopted by the screen, when this function is activated, are very similar to those of night mode (Night Shift), both functions have nothing to do with each other.
What is True Tone ?:
The option True tone is a function of iOS that allows us to adapt the colors of the screen of our device to the environment in which we find ourselves.
In theory, it makes the colors we see on the screen appear as real as possible. The iPhone Use advanced multi-channel sensors to adjust the color and intensity of the screen. It adapts to ambient light, so images have a more natural appearance.
An example could be the following. If you look at a sheet in broad daylight, it looks white, but if we see it in the light of a small lamp, we may see it orange. Everything will depend on the shade of the bulb.
That is why the iPhone It analyzes all the possible variables of the environment in which we are, to adapt the screen to what supposedly would be its “true color”.
True Tone yes or no ?:
Here I am going to give you my personal opinion on the subject.
I am a person who always looks for the battery of the iPhone it lasts as long as possible. That is why having active sensors to analyze light conditions, shades of the environment … to adapt the colors of the mobile screen, I see a bad battery drain.
It may be that the expense is minimal, but it is something that I do not see that is essential for me. It is true that with this active option, the eye suffers less. In my case I play with the brightness of the screen, in manual, to adapt it to the lighting conditions in which I find myself. We already talked about this in its day and we advise you disable iPhone auto brightness, although Manzana advises to have it active.
Is it better to enable or disable the True Tone function of iOS ?:
Everything will depend on your tastes.
In my case, and as you may have deduced, I have it disabled. I already use the option Night shift so that at night the screen turns into warmer colors so that the eye does not suffer.
To me the one that the iPhone I change the colors of the screen, it is something that I do not like too much. Also, I can’t stand the warm colors displayed on the screen, with the True tone activated, throughout the day. I prefer colder colors.
But if you are a person who is tired of the view, who likes that the screen adapts to the lighting conditions and shades of the environment around you … do not hesitate to activate it. It is a great function and that, little by little, Manzana it is installing on all your devices.
Now it is your choice to activate or deactivate it.
We hope we have helped you understand how this option of iOS and tell us if you have it active or not, in the comments of this article.
