Using the function to reduce blue light from the screen and the dark theme of the interface on smartphones does not help users, but harms. This was established by scientists at the University of Manchester, who conducted a series of studies on the benefits of the protective functions of mobile devices.
For many years, it has been widely believed that reducing exposure to blue light helps the body prepare for sleep faster. On the iPhone, the standard Night Shift function is responsible for this. Similar modes that make the screen light warmer are on other smartphones.
However, according to a new study by Dr. Tim Brown and his team, provided that the light is equally dim, blue light is more relaxing than yellow. In their experiments on mice, scientists used specially designed lighting that allowed you to adjust the light without changing the brightness. The study showed that cold light had a weaker effect on the internal clock of the mouse than warm light with the same brightness.
According to scientists, there is every reason that the results of the study are true for people. However, in the future they plan to conduct similar experiments in humans.
Earlier we talked about how to improve the quality of sleep with the iPhone.
