One area where Apple and other smartphone makers are trying to innovate is in the camera department. Many of the best phones can already take some incredible images, but you have to have the right amount of light. In recent years, we’ve seen additions to iOS that allows you to capture images using “Night Mode”.

When enabled, Night Mode allows you to take a picture in a practically pitch-black environment and get a usable photo. However, there are some photos that just don’t turn out how we expect them to even with Night Mode enabled.
How to turn off Night Mode on iPhone
There has always been a way for you turn off Night Mode, but until now, your iPhone would always enable it anyways. This is done when your iPhone’s camera sensors detect that it’s a low-light situation. You can technically still toggle it off, after Night Mode is enabled. However, iOS 15 is introducing a new way for you to turn off this mode and keep it turned off.
- Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
- Scroll down and tap Camera.
- Tap on Preserver.
- Tap the toggle next to Night Mode.
Once completed, your iPhone will no longer automatically switch over to Night Mode when the sensors detect the low-light situation. However, you can still toggle the feature when you want to, just by tapping the icon at the top of the camera app.
By being able to turn off Night Mode, this makes it possible for you to still attempt to capture shots without having the images completely blown out. What you think is a really good picture, can turn out to be an abomination and it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to go back to snap the same picture.
Although Apple is delaying some of the announced iOS 15 features, there are still other ones that are arriving. This little tidbit is one example of how Apple is continuing to implement new features with every release. Not all of them are “headline stealers”, but they can really improve your overall experience.
Apple is expected to release the final version of iOS 15, along with iPadOS 15 and macOS Monterey sometime in September. It’s likely to arrive around the same time as the rumored iPhone 13 and Apple Watch Series 7 launch.
