Apple introduced Night Shift Mode in iOS 9.2 update, and it appears the company is planning to add this feature to the Apple Watch and Macs as well as CarPlay, reveals a new patent.

A patent spotted by PatentlyApple notes Apple plans to use the Night Mode for Apple Watch, Macs, Carplay as well.

Night Shift Mode in Apple’s iOS switches the display to warmer tone, more yellowish than harsher blue lights. Exposure to bright blue light as we stay glued to our phones all day and night is known to harm sleep cycles and the Night Shift mode goes for more warmer tones based on time and geolocation.

Essentially post sunset, the display will become more yellow, if you have kept the night shift mode on.

The short blue wavelength builds up histamine in our bodies, suppressing melatonin which is needed for better sleep cycles.

Apple is also expected to launch a new version of the Watch with micro LED panels in place of OLED. We’ve not yet seen the Apple Watch 2 get launched, even though it’s been a little more than a year since the original watch was released.

Apple’s use of micro LED panels could be bolstered by its acquisition of US based micro-LED developer LuxVue Technologies. Apple had set up a lab in northern Taiwan for R&D of new display technology, reported Digitimes.
