Night shift mode not working on iOS, iPadOS, or macOS? Here is a solution

Night Shift automatically changes your device’s screen colors to warmer (orange) after sunset for your overall health and well-being. Studies show that exposure to blue light after sunset can affect circadian rhythms, making it much more difficult to fall asleep. To counteract this effect, Apple introduced Night Shift on its iPhone, iPad, and iPod and later on its Mac.

Night Shift is available on iPhone 5s or later, iPad Pro, iPad (5th generation and later), iPad Air or later, iPad mini 2 or later, and iPod touch (6th generation and later). For example, if you have an iPod Touch 5 or an iPhone 5C, then there won’t be any night shift options to select from.
