In this post, you’re going to learn how to make the iPhone screen darker without Zoom in iOS 16. You want to use your iPhone, but the screen is just too bright. Bright displays may be uncomfortable for you and those around you, especially if they’re attempting to sleep. They can also strain your eyes.
As you all know that Android phones have a built-in feature called “Extra dim” which makes the phone screen darker. However, there’s no such feature on iPhone.
On occasion, you can sense that the phone’s screen is overly bright in a dim setting (e.g., in a theatre). The brightness level, however, is already at the lowest setting, or auto-brightness (adaptive brightness) is already activated.
In order to further lower the “brightness” of the screen below the minimum value defined by the hardware vendor, Google added Extra Dim as an accessibility feature in Android 12.
How to Make iPhone Screen Darker in iOS 16
In order to make the screen darker without Zoom, we must enable “Reduce White Point.” With the previous iOS, the Reduce White Point was first made available. Access to it is available under Accessibility. Many people are unaware of this setting unless someone else brings it up. Define Reduce White Point then.
You may have seen that while you may initially enjoy the vivid colors on your iPhone or iPad screen, after some time they may start to bother your eyes and make you uncomfortable. Additionally, the Reduce White Point might be useful here. Bright colors will have less intensity, dulling the screen. Your eyes will find it easy if you do this.
1. Go to the Settings app.
2. Tap Accessibility.
3. Tap Display & Text Size.
4. Scroll all the way down and enable Reduce White Point.
5. Move the slider and adjust the darkness of your screen light settings.
On iOS devices, the screen will look pale when Reduce While Point is enabled, leading you to question if battery life may also be preserved. No, is the response. It doesn’t lessen the brightness of the display; it merely lessens the irritating glare of white hues.
When you are satisfied with your settings, swipe up from the bottom of the screen or press the Home button on devices that have a physical Home button to return to the Home screen.
That’s all. These were the steps to make the iPhone screen darker on iOS 16 without Zoom.
