How to use night mode on iPhone 11


iPhone 11 Apple has added Night mode, which uses a combination of the triple-lens system and computational software to pull in as much light as possible from the world around you to brighten up photos taken in dark lighting. It's not turning up the brightness setting. Far from it. Thanks to some behind-the-scenes technology, the shutter stays open longer to pull in the extra light. At the same time, the camera is capturing a bunch of angles to find what needs to be sharp, like a person's face (or a plate of food, or your pupper). The software analyzes all the angles captured and builds a singular photo out of it. This is how you get brighter shots without all that noise.


How to use Night mode on iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro


  • With the Camera app open, look for the moon icon in the top left corner (top right in landscape orientation)
  • If it’s grayed out, it’s available to use, but not auto-enabled
  • If it’s yellow, Night mode is auto-enabled
  • Tap the moon icon to manually adjust the exposure time
  • Hold your iPhone as still as possible during the Night mode shot (the moon icon will include how long the exposure will be for each shot, a countdown will appear just above the shutter button)

Keep in mind Night mode only works with the wide and telephoto cameras. As shown above, yellow means Night mode is auto-enabled for the shot you’re about to take. Gray means it’s accessible manually but not turned on automatically.

Tap the moon to manually adjust the Night mode shot exposure. Note the exposure time for your shot and be sure to hold your iPhone as still as possible. Different max exposure times will be available based on the light in your environment.
