Not sure if this has been discussed. But I toggled off the reduce white point . And it's really changed the dynamic of the screen. It's so much brighter and clearer.

Just curious to know if anyone has tried this .

Isn’t this feature already disabled by default? Also, it seems kind of counter- productive to what True tone also corrects the white point on the display based on the ambient lighting in the environment.

Reduce white point makes the screen easier on the eyes if you're looking at a lot of white backgrounds

Personally, I get eye fatigue on all iOS devices if I do extensive reading/web browsing with this feature turned off. However, it’s easy to set up the triple click home button shortcut to turn it on or off quickly, which is handy for watching videos or viewing photos.

It is off by default. You can turn it on to help dim white background. It helps to reduce eye strain from OLED screen as well.
