How To Dim iPhone Screen Even More Using Zoom Than What Control Center Allows

iOS 8 has packed in plenty of highly appreciable tricks. Although most of them have been found out, there are still some hidden tricks which are yet to be noticed by a few iPhone and iPad users. Among the many tweaks that iOS 8 has got with it, the ability to dim the screen much lower than what Control Center allows is the one which hasn’t yet been known by many.

Here is how you can enable this trick on your iPhone. Let’s have a glance!
