Night Shift on MacOS
MacOS Sierra 10 12 4 was officially presented to the developers this morning. What attracted the most attention in the new update was the night mode feature called Night Shift.
Introduced for the iOS devices with iOS 9.3 for the first time, Night Shift was designed to reduce the exposure to the blue lights by slowly moving the screen from a blue tint to a yellow color. With the MacOS Sierra 10.12.4, the night mode is coming for the Apple computers, so it will help the people who tend to work on their computers at night.
The settings for the night mode are located in the System Preferences. In this section, users can determine when should this feature to be activated according to the sunsets and sunrises. If desired, all these operations can be done automatically ( either from Siri or from the notification panel ). There are also options for manual switching of settings and for changing the color temperature of the display according to preferences.
The night mode feature was originally provided by f.lux software. Not only Macs, but also compatible with different operating systems such as Windows, this application automatically adjusts the display to the current time. However, with the 10.12.4 macOS Sierra, a built-in night mode feature removes the need for third-party applications.
MacOS Sierra 10.12.4 is currently only open for the developers. However, in the near future it will be made available to the general beta testers. The update is expected to be available for all users in March or April.
