At the Apple Event held on 21st March 2016, Apple released 9.7-inch iPad Pro and an iPhone SE. Along with it, Apple also released the public version of iOS 9.3. One of the features of iOS 9.3 is the Night Shift Mode, which changes the color on the screen depending upon the time.

We have already provided a guide on how to enable/disable Night Shift mode in iOS 9.3. But the problem is that some users aren’t getting an option to schedule automatic sunset/sunrise option on their iPhone or iPad. After digging a little deep into the issue, we have come up with a fix that works. Just go through the guide below and follow the steps to resolve the issue.

Night Shift Mode Sunrise-Sunset Schedule Missing in iOS 9.3 on iPhone and iPad

Before going forward with the fix, it’s better to understand the problem. Automatic Sunrise/Sunset uses Location Services to determine your location accurately. Depending on the Time Zone, the option works. Everything related to Location Services falls under the Privacy toggles in the Settings app and thus, if it is disabled under Privacy tab, you’ll not get the automatic sunset/sunrise schedule in Night Shift Mode. Now that you have got the idea of the root of the problem, we can proceed with the fix.
