I have an iPhone 5 running iOS 9.3.1. I wanted to activate the Night Watch feature, but there is no such setting under Settings/Display&Brightness. Any ideas why not? Thanks.

Are you talking about Night Shift? If so, there's no option on older devices. You need a 64 bit (iPhone 5s or newer) to use it.

Yes, Night Shift. I was under the impression that Apple was releasing a version for us with older phones.

I haven't done this with f.lux, but I have had very good luck side-loading other projects that Apple decided I couldn't have on my 32-bit iOS devices through the App Store but ran beautifully when side-loaded.

Check it out.

Keep in mind that for sideloading f.lux, you're going to have to go and find f.lux for Xcode yourself. In the link you provide, f.lux is no longer available as Apple notified the devs that they were in violation of their developer agreement.

Thanks for pointing this out. With the link still there on the page, I hadn't realized it had been taken down. Very lame since many other side-loadable projects are fully out in the open on SourceForge, GitHub, etc.
