Apple is a superior brand in the mobile industry. Aside from the sophistication their hardware, the software is also one to beat. Running on their own operating system, the IOS, developed applications run smoothly. When Apple launches a new model, it brings with it something new, something fresh, an upgrade from the previous. With the new iPhone 7, the main highlight was its water resistant capability, hardware chip and camera. Rumors are already circulating as to what the iPhone 7S, iPhone 7S Plus, and the iPhone 8’s new and exciting features will be.
Barclays is a British multi-national banking and financial services company with operations in retail, wholesale and investment banking, physically based in London. They said in a statement that the upcoming models of the iPhone possibly named as the iPhone 7S, 7S Plus and the iPhone 8 will be having OLED display will each include a “full spectral sensing” ambient light sensor for the purpose of a “True Color” screen. True Color, or True Tone Display, alters the device’s display by altering the screen’s appearance based on a given lighting condition. It functions like white balance where it compensates the given settings to achieve a certain display output.
The first from Apple that received a True Tone upgrade is the Apple iPad Pro. This 9.7 inch tablet incorporates 4 sensors which measure the ambient light color and brightness, allowing the display to correct white point and illumination based on the lighting in your environment.

In one way or another, True Tone has a similarity with the “Night Shift” feature. For devices with this feature, once turned on the display gives out a warm yellow hue. Since gadgets seem to emit more blue color, it is believed, and proven by scientific study, that blue light in the evening disrupts and delays sleep. Yellow light induces sleep therefore more advisable. The latest Apple IOS 9.3 update added the Night Shift feature. As most devices are equipped with LED display, it emits more blue compared to fluorescents.
Blue light is much potent than any other color and help sets a person’s body clock, as much as it causes eye strain. Though this may not be a primary reason for the situations stated above, this has a contributing factor. To prevent adverse effects from happening, it is still advisable to not use gadgets excessively. Most people have a tendency to stay up late at night going over their electronic devices, but too much will definitely result to eye sores and possible headaches, not to mention Insomnia when taken long term.
