    Any thoughts?
    TIA

    There are 3rd party apps that can do the same thing. That's not the case on iOS.

    I thought Night Shift created a certain display that was unique to Apple?
    You know, the blue tint that is easy on the eyes....
    Good Luck

    All Night Shift does is shift the color temperature to the warmer side of the spectrum. It's nothing specific to Apple's displays.

    It's just a matter of time before Apple brings it to the Mac.

    Yeah. I use flux on my Mac as well. Before Apple came up with the idea of night shift, a company had already made a program for that in Cydia many years before.

    Night shift was not an Apple invention. Here's a reference to an Android app that did the same thing in 2013: Twilight for Android Changes Your Screen Brightness by Time of Day

    There may well be earlier prior art.

    Of course not. As I said before a jailbreak application called Flux has been around since the late 2000's and it was really popular so apple decided to incorporate the features into native iOS and they called it Night Shift

    Apple will most likely add it in the long run

    Apple will definitely add it eventually. I'm sure they're just working on making effective system wide.

    As for the technology, I'm pretty sure it started with just glasses, probably early 90's if not 80's. I couldn't tell you though who or when it was first brought to software.

    Is there an app that lets you schedule night shift mode like Apple's does? Flux doesn't see to have that option It asks me when I wake up, but not when I go to sleep ( or when want it to go into night mode )

    No night shift for Macs? Simple - someone at Apple said we're supposed to be in bed with iPhones when it's dark outside.

    And I was expecting an attractive and intelligent lady in my bed tonight, instead of my iPhone. (sigh) I'm very disappointed too.

    Why do you need an intelligent lady in your bed ?

    Flux is completely automatic - it detects location (or you enter it manually) and then it engages and disengages at proper times. You can even set the length of the transition between fluxed and non-fluxed display.

    Agree - Flux works wonders and changes your screen automatically

    Ennui, from their Department of Indifference - especially when their most recent hardware and OS make it fairly clear that they're trying to get out of the computer biz, in favour of iOS and its devices.

    Or Apple's traditional view that it knows what users really want, and its never what users say they need.

    Take your pick.
