    Clearly there is a good split on this issue. Lots of yays, lots of nays. Thank heaven it can be turned on/off.

    Me, I keep it off.

    I like the True Tone and have mine set on auto and it’s working perfectly for my daily needs. Couldn’t be happier.

    I don't like it, shut it off immediately. Way too yellow for my liking
    I felt that way initially but kept it on, without it on the display looked way to blue under the store lights. Since then, I'm not seeing the same amount of yellow. At least one thought is that I changed from the default beach wallpaper. I suspect that part of the extra yellow color is because of the wallpaper. Though it could also have to do with the store lighting.

    I use TrueTone. It puts less strain on the eyes when looking at a white page.

    Turned off. I don't like that tint it gives colors, especially the whites. I feel like it takes away from the screens quality.

    I prefer it on. In most lighting it makes white look more of a true white. There are certain lighting situations that it looks a little yellowish, but I prefer that to looking too cool, almost blue in most situations. With it off it looks a lot more like my Samsung S8+ which I always thought had whites that skewed blue.

    I use and like TrueTone, and doubt very seriously that it has any noticeable affect on battery life.

    I’ve kept True Tone on. Too blue with it off. Ironically a colleague at work walking by me the other day said it looked yellow (w/ True Tone on).

    Would be nice to be able to adjust it just a bit, but regardless I’ll be leaving it enabled.

    This is one of the big selling features for me. I spend so much time on the phone per day, anything that makes the display more natural looking and easier to read is a big bonus in my mind.

    Yes it does affect battery life. It's worth the penalty though.
    I abhor night shift. Never liked it. However, true tone is great because once you understand how it works and why it's necessary it's hard to do without it! Think about looking at a piece of paper. It's diffuse and its tint is dependent upon the ambient lighting. A static white point is fine in an office or studio but our phones aren't stationary. The screen will always appear as a piece of bright white paper while illuminated by the ambient lighting. If you have incandescent lighting or CFL/LED lights with warm white (approx 2700k) color temperature, the display's white levels will indeed look warmer. So will the paper. Outdoors, the color temperature is very cooler and the display again will reflect this. This is why a normal display that looks white at home will look much different in the office or outdoors.

    There is a battery hit because sensors are constantly polling the ambient light sensor and the controller has to dynamically shift the display's color temperature. If you want the absolute best battery life turn it off as well as auto brightness. The extra 10 minutes (at most) you gain of on screen time at the end of the day (IHMO) is NOT worth the trade off!

    Also, when the screen shifts brightness and color, the increments are much smaller so it's not nearly as harsh as other phones.

    Finally, if you want to adjust the color with either true tone on or off you can. Here's how:

    Click on settings.
    Find General and click on it.
    From there, find Accessibility and click on it.
    Find Display Accommodations and click on it.
    Find Color Filters and click on it.
    You should see an image with colored pencils.
    Click the toggle to the right of Color Filters.
    Look for Color Tint and click it so it has a check mark.
    Two sliders below labeled INTENSITY and HUE can be adjusted to your liking.
    You can play with this literally for hours even holding a piece of paper next to your phone to get it as close as you can, etc. Or just adjust it until it doesn't seem so yellow, etc. I've played with it for a while but find that leaving it off just seems to be the best. Everyone's panel is different and is individually calibrated at the factory to have the best results. But there can and will be sample variance and some users are more sensitive than others to this.

    I don't mind it but it overrides the brightness setting as well and I find the screen is too dark in low light. If I could lock the brightness setting with TrueTone on... I would probably leave it on. but I understand the brightness setting is also part of the TrueTone feature.

    Are you using auto brightness? If so, turn it off and set brightness manually.

    I see the True Tone setting but I don’t see the auto brightness one. Unless you guys are talking about the iPad Pro. I was thinking we were talking about the X.

    I looked on the display and brightness setting and didn’t find auto brightness.

    Damn... Thank you. I didn't realize auto-brightness was in Accessibility settings... I thought they had removed it in favor of TrueTone.. My mistake. Glad I asked.

    I turned mine off for a couple of days. I found the display caused too much eye strain with it off (it also looked too blue).

    Yeah, my Dad was like “why is the screen so yellow?”
    I told him that it’s better for his eyes at night.

    I’m liking the feature. Definitely easier on the eyes. Have to say I still have a separate kindle for reading books. But the feature on my iPad and iPhone make a huge difference to my eye comfort

    For sure.
    It does get a bit warm/yellow in certain environments but it’s definitely more pleasant to the eyes.
