In the iOS settings you will find a few options to adjust the display. In addition to text size, light and dark mode and other adjustments, there are also some color filters. With it you can either adjust the colors so that they are more recognizable in the case of color blindness. Or you can activate the grayscale, also called black and white mode. This not only counteracts the overstimulation caused by the colorful display; With OLED models, the gray levels also ensure that the iPhone battery is conserved. How to find the settings, I'll show you in the following step-by-step guide.
All of the features described can be found in the same menu - at least in the current version of the iPhone operating system iOS 14. Which Apple smartphones are compatible with it, you can find out with this link. If you have a current device, then these are the instructions that you can follow for the color filters for the iPhone display:
You can now choose between the grayscale (saturation of all colors is set to 0), the red-green filter (protanopia), the green-red filter (deuteranopia), the blue-yellow filter (tritanopia) and the color cast. With the color cast, you can select a color tone and use the slider to place it on the display in an individually selected intensity.
In the following you will find the above step-by-step instructions in the form of screenshots. This saves you the long search if the points mentioned do not immediately catch your eye in the endless menus of the iOS settings. If you have comments on the topic, know examples of how the color cast filter can be used, or if you can use the other filters to adapt the display to your color blindness, please leave a comment.
