Low power and night shift mode on iOS 9 are some great ways to save battery. You can turn on the night shift mode to save the iPhone resources. In night shift mode, the iPhone depletes the blue lights to better protect the eyes and sleep cycles of the user. Low power mode, as the name suggests, is used to save battery. Users were happy to use both these modes together to save the battery remarkably. You could turn on the low power mode and night shift mode to add hours to the remaining battery time. But a latest update by Apple took away this facility. A ridiculous update, iOS 9.3.1, removed the ability to turn on the night shift and power saver mode in iPhone. But a workaround has been figured out which will allow you to use the feature again.

Yes! You can turn on the night shift mode and power saver mode in iOS 9.3.1 using a trick. This article illustrates the steps in detail in order to do the trick. Let’s get started:

Siri will ask your approval to go ahead. Reply with a “Yes” but before the response is confirmed, quickly turn on the sleep mode by pressing the sleep button. You will hear the beep which indicates that the Siri’s confirmation.
Now unlock the iPhone and if everything went correctly, you will notice that the low power mode and night shift mode are enabled at the same time.

You will be surprised to see that the night shift mode button will be greyed out in the control center and the settings menu, but the night shift mode will be on as you will be able to confirm it by looking at the color of the screen. This is because the iOS is just not programed to let the power saver and night shift enabled at the same time.
