    I just activated night shift mode on my iPhone 6 128GB. I set it to the warmest colour from 9pm to 7am.
    But the colours did not change at 9pm, but 9:01. Is this intended?

    The night/silent mode works as well on the minute if I recall correctly.

    I believe it slowly transitions over that one minute period from the blue daylight color to the warmer night color.

    This. Starting at 10PM (Which I have mine set for), I see a slow transition for about 20-30 seconds.

    Am I the only one who uses sunrise to sunset option?

    No. I use this setting currently. Although that true tone display would be nice on the next iPhone.

    I've used sunrise to sunset since the first 9.3 beta night shift was introduced in.

    Sunset is too early for me. Sun is setting at 7PM here in SoCal and I don't go to bed till 11PM at the earliest. I have mine set from 10PM-7AM.

    As I understand part of the benefit is to have it like that a few hours before you go to bed as blue light affects things further back than just an hour or so.

    From all the studies I have read in the past, your not suppose to expose your self to blue light 90 minutes before bed. So most nights I am going to sleep between 11PM-Midnight, I'm going the last 1-2 hours without blue light. Thats assuming I'm even using the devices in the last 90 minutes anyway. I typically put my devices on the chargers before I even get into bed.

    Seems like it's not late, just that there is a transition time that is in effect.

    I'm in cali too but I just let it kick in at 7pm anyway. No harm done really as I'm not editing photos on my phone or anything where color matters.

    What colour setting are you all using? Is this a real thing, or a scam like homeopathy and horoscopes?

    I use the warmest setting. I've been using f.lux for years, and have really gotten used to warmer settings.

    I don't really care about this 1 minute late. F.lux on Mac OS X also have a 1 minutes or so or even longer transition time to turn display into warmer color temperature.
    What I like is I do not need to jailbreak just for this feature. :)

    How to you turn that option on? All I see is schedule option, nothing else.

    EDIT: Never mind, I see you had to go into the options schedule to turn sunrise sunset on.

    That's what I'm using. I would think that it's what would be best for my circadian rhythms.

    Edit: others beat me to it. Yes, you want to be using it a couple hours before you try to go to sleep.

    You talking about in system settings? That one has to be on.
    Settings -> Privacy -> Location Services -> System Services

    Yeah. I turned it on but still didn't get the sunset/sunrise option.
