As DJ Khaled would say this is a major key. Today it hit me reading with True Tone and Night Shift especially both mainly at night does not hurt my eyes. Not only is the newer IPS panel well balanced and super rich and colorful even at low brightness settings it's the utmost in a balance of vibrancy and neutrality. My brother stopped by on vacation with his iPad Air 2 and the cool blue coldness I once thought superior is simply offensive now it's that harsh. And there's no other way to say it nicely.

Mainly reading it's the majority of what we do on a 9.7 tablet. Internet, News, Emails, Texts, App details or even work PDF files. Not only look better. But the device itself improves the quality of life because it does not cause harm. And that's something to be considered and worth a few extra dollars from the checking account.

I am much more geared towards cooler blue screens than warmer yellow ones. The more yellow a screen is the dirtier/grungier it looks to me. Turned off true tone as quickly as I got past the initial setup screen on my iPad Pro 9.7".

Glad your eyes don't hurt anymore though!

The example I'd give is not knowing there's something better.

Like wearing Converse shoes as a kid and they are fines shoes but it's a flat rubber sole. And one day someone hands you a pair of Nike Air Max, and you wear them and it's something better. You just ain't going back to the Converse shoes ever again.

This is totally a tangent, but regarding your shoe example--a Nike Air Max may feel more comfy than a Converse once you put it on, but there are many who maintain that the constant use of modern sneakers--with thick cushion soles and arch support--actually cause the weakening of people's feet muscles/tendons/ligaments, in some cases causing flat feet. It makes sense because our feet were designed for high stress, not to be coddled. Anything that is coddled is in danger of atrophy. And the arch in our feet isn't physically meant to be supported from underneath (egg shells are strong when pressed from outside, but when chicks push from underneath, the shell breaks). Also in the case of many runners, modern sneakers cause improper running form (heel striking, as opposed to proper mid-foot or fore-foot striking) which causes excessive shock and ultimately injury to knee and hip joints. This is why I now actually wear only thin sole shoes such as Converse. JUST FYI. ;)

Back on topic--I agree, I can't stand blue light at night, unless I need to stay up to work. Night Shift is an absolute Godsend. So much easier to read at night, and to fall asleep.
