I just bought the latest iPhone 6S last night. It’s an incredible device. I’m not an engineer, but it seems like 3D Touch is an amazing engineering feat. Well done.

I just have one beef with you, Apple. It’s a beef I’ve had for a few years now.

And it’s why I just sent you this feedback:

There are countless articles and studies that go into detail on how bad blue light from a phone is at night. Please allow something like f.lux to exist or develop something internally for iOS. There are literally millions of people who now sleep worse because they’re staring at their phones too late at night. I’m definitely guilty of it. Heck, I’m doing it right now and I need to get up at 5:30am. Please, please, please work on this feature and make the world a better, more rested place.

So yeah, I don’t think I have much to add beyond that. I just didn’t want it to go into some black hole of customer suggestions.

Here’s a recent article I was reading that prompted this post: How to Get Some Rest When Stress Is Keeping You Up at Night
