How to turn True Tone on and off

True Tone was designed to make looking at a screen more like looking at a sheet of paper. By using four-channel ambient light sensors to match the lighting around you, the screen adjusts its color temperature (think warm and cool colors) for a more natural and balanced look. This makes reading and browsing more comfortable.

Note: True Tone is currently only available on the 9.7-inch iPad Pro.

How to turn on True Tone

  1. Launch Settings from your Home screen.
  2. Tap on Display & Brightness.

    Open Settings, head to Display & Brightness

  3. Switch True Tone to On. The switch should be green.

    Flip the switch on

Note: True Tone is automatically disabled when it could adversely affect color-sensitive tasks like photo editing.
