Apple’s iPhones running on iOS are equipped with some of the most advanced photo features that can be found on smartphones. However, the Californian manufacturer leaves very little control over these features and this is especially the case for Night Mode, which is triggered automatically whether you want it or not.
The problem with this “feature” is that you have to manually disable Night Mode every time you open the Camera app and the smartphone detects a dark scene. At first, it was not possible to disable this Night Mode to use it only when needed.
Well, not anymore! In this article, we shows you how to disable the automatic Night Mode on iPhone.
How to disable Auto Night Mode on iPhone
It should be noted that at the time of writing this article, this feature is only available on devices running the beta version of iOS 15. However, with the launch of the new iPhones just days away, Apple should start rolling out the latest version of the OS very soon.
In any case, here are the steps to take to disable Night Mode on an iPhone running iOS 15 or higher:
- Go to Settings.
- Scroll down and tap on Camera.
- In the camera settings, go to the Keep settings option
- Look for the Night Mode option and make sure the toggle switch is on (green).

Now, when you open the Camera app, the smartphone will “remember” that you disabled Night Mode the last time you used the camera. This means that you will now be able to manually activate Night Mode only when you need it.
Why disable Night Mode on your iPhone?
There’s no doubt that enabling Night Mode is very useful for most iPhone users. It ensures that you will almost always have well-lit and usable images that you will share mainly via social networks.
So why would you want to disable Night Mode?
It turns out that a lot of iPhone users don’t particularly like the dominant nature of iOS’s Night mode and end up with what can be described as “artificial” and very bright images.
These users prefer the “authentic” look of a low-light image where the idea is not to gather as much light as possible but to keep the light sources dimmed and thus, the image natural.
Although these users prefer to use the manual mode to take pictures, there is no denying the convenience that the “Auto” mode offers on most modern smartphones today. And that’s why we think these users will love the option to disable Auto Night Mode.
