Just updated to 10.12.4 and can't see the option in the display preferences, is it only on laptops ?
Depends on the Mini - Late 2012 or newer is OK. See the list in this article: https://support.apple.com/HT207513
There is no Night Shift tab in System Preferences Display. I think you need an Apple or LG monitor.
I have a 2012 Mini with a Dell S2340 monitor, and it has a tab for Night Shift on Display preferences. I don't know why, as the Dell is not on the list of required displays.
I use a 15" LCD TV that may be why.
yeah, I wonder if it has to do with using a TV. My Mac Pro isn't showing it either despite the update.
it says that it is not suported on projector and TV's
Mac mini (Late 2012) and one of the following four displays:
Apple LED Cinema Display
Apple Thunderbolt Display
LG UltraFine 5K Display
LG UltraFine 4K Display
Hm, I use a 23" Acer H236HL Display with my 2014 Mac mini and I have Night Shift working.
It also shows available with my late 2012 and Viewsonic VX2270 monitor.
Edit: Just tested it by sliding the color temperature and checking on/off. And it does work. Curious that Apple says it has to be one of the four listed displays.
It works on mine with a hp monitor
Works here too.. Im using a cheapo Samsung 23" Monitor (On a 2012 i7 Mini)
That said, Nightshift is total crap and I turned it off. It just makes my monitor look old and faded.
I confirmed that Nightshift is working on my Mac mini. The monitor I am using for it is an old Dell U2312HM.
I agree with the poster above. I don't like the feature either and have it disabled on all of my machines.
Working on my 2012 i7 running through a Dell U2412M, I doubt I'll use it if I'm honest.
It is not working with my 15" LCD TV (no tab) but works when connected to my 15" HP USB monitor.
Works with my Dells LCDs here. I love Night Shift.
It works very well here. late 2012, macOS Sierra v.10.12.5 beta, BenQ V2400Eco
I can also say that my 2012 mini, night shift works with a Dell S2340. And, I can say I like how it works.
Can you give as a Screenshot from your Display System Settings?
I think it detects you display as a TV, so this tab should look a little bit different. Since it might treat you display as a TV you need to force it to think it is a monitor and not a TV. This blog might help with that: http://www.mathewinkson.com/2013/03...ix-the-picture-quality-of-an-external-monitor
Edit: Night Shift works fine on my two Samsung displays. So there should be a way to fix it.
Night shift also works on my Mac Mini 2012, using a 15 year old Dell LCD monitor.
