Night Shift: Useful or not?

Although many people believe that they will rest better at night with the night mode function or Night shift activated on their cell phones, a new Brigham Young University study says there is no difference between using it or not.

It was BYU psychology professor Chad Jensen who came up with these guesses. For this, he compared the sleep of 167 people in the following categories:

  • Those who did not use their cell phone before going to bed.
  • Those who used their phone at night but with the function Night shift activated.
  • And finally, those who used their phone at night without Night Shift.

In this case, and with the sample of participants in the study, no improvement was noticed in the sleep of those who activated the dark mode. In fact, no difference was noticed in the quality of sleep in those who either did not use the cell phone or used it with or without the mode. Night shift activated.
