    Default Trick to make your iPhone screen darker



    SkySafari on my phone has become my default guiding system. I use it in night mode, with minimum brightness, but sometimes I find myself wishing for an even darker screen. Apparently, it can be done:

    I've been using a similar but slightly different technique where I set the color tint to red and the white point down. It's good to know there are other options. I find the setting in SS the least useful because if you need to go to any other app or setting you get blasted so it's much better to change it for everything like these instructions show.
