Apple’s Upcoming iPhone Devices Might Automatically Change Display Tone

April 6, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Apple’s True Tone technology, the one that changes display color based on ambient colors, will soon break the iPad barrier. According to analysts Barclays, the upcoming iPhone devices will be featuring the True Tone technology, which would bring the technology to the smaller devices for the first time.

The technology will be used in all of the three upcoming iPhone devices that include iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus and the iPhone 8 device. To aid the technology, all the three smartphones will include additional full spectral sensing light sensors that can detect the color of the ambient environment.

Based on the color detection, the iPhone devices will be able to automatically switch the display tone to match that of the ambient environment. Say you are in a room with lighting of orange hue, and the display of the iPhone will automatically be switched to that of orange tone.

Normal ambient sensors that are used in all of the current smartphones only makes use of the ambient brightness to automatically adjust the screen brightness. However, Apple has explained that users do note the difference in screen color when they enter from a room of a particular ambient lighting to a room of different ambient lighting.

Apple has introduced the True Tone technology in its 9.7-inch iPad Pro, which is the sole device in which the technology is available today. Although there hasn’t been any confirmation, Apple has previously expressed the interest in expanding the technology to its other devices including iPhones. The report from Barclays also mentions that the Cupertino Company will be sourcing its new sensors from Austria-based AMS.
