Enable Night Shift on Apple Watch with Siri

Jun 28, 2024 - 1 Comment

Apple Watch Series 9

Night Shift is a nice feature from Apple that warms the color tones on screens during the evening and nighttime hours, with the idea being that it may help to reduce eyestrain and blue light exposure. Night Shift has been around on Mac, iPhone, and iPad, for quite some time, but the feature has been notably absent from Apple Watch… at least at any obvious level.

But it turns out that Apple Watch does have Night Shift, at least on relatively newer models, with newer watchOS system software, there’s just no Settings toggle for it. Instead, Apple Watch users can enable Night Shift on their watch by using Siri.

Enabling & Disabling Night Shift on Apple Watch with Siri

  • To enable Night Shift on Apple Watch, summon Siri and say: “Hey Siri, turn on Night Shift”
  • To disable Night Shift on Apple Watch, summon Siri and say: “Hey Siri, turn off Night Shift”

How to turn on Night Shift on Apple Watch with Siri

With Night Shift enabled on Apple Watch, you’ll see the screen display become a little warmer.

Remember, this is only available through Siri for whatever reason, there is no Settings option otherwise to enable this on Apple Watch. This is different from iPhone and iPad, which have Settings options, as well as toggles in Control Center for the feature, or Mac through System Settings.

Perhaps this feature will arrive on watchOS with dedicated toggles in Control Center and Settings soon, but for the time being the only way to enable or disable Night Shift on Apple Watch is through Siri as instructed.

Thanks to MacRumors for pointing out this handy little trick.

    Unfortunately! Does not work on the Dutch version.

    Get the message ‘sorry, I can’t help you with this on the AppleWatch’.
