Night Shift is a nice feature for iPhone and iPad, making nighttime reading much easier. With the release of macOS 10.12.4, Apple finally brought the night mode to the Mac. Once enabled, Night Shift turns the display of a mac into a more yellow tone, thus cutting down on the amount of the blue light during the evening.
While Night Shift is a great addition to macOS, it can sometimes become cause of annoyance. We have heard a lot of complaints from Mac owners that Night Shift gets stuck on. This means that their Mac screen remains orange, even during daylight.
If you are among those users who have been affected by the issue, this article walks you through the troubleshooting steps to fix Night Shift stuck on in macOS. Before we begin, make sure you now have a modern version of macOS on your computer.
How to fix Night Shift stuck on in macOS
Step one: First off, pull down the Apple menu and select System Preferences to proceed
Step two: Next up, select Display from the list of options and then make sure you select the Night Shift tab
Step three: Once you are in, uncheck the box next to Turn On Until Tomorrow. After that, move the Color Temperature slider to the left and then move it back to the right to see if the problem is fixed
Once you do that, the Mac screen should go back to its normal temperature. If the problem still persists, try restarting your Mac.
Note that you can add a quick Night Shift toggle to the Notification Center, so you enable or disable it without opening the System Preferences. Keep in mind that Night Shift supports MacBook (2015 or later) and MacBook Pro (Mid 2012 or newer). We recommend you enable Night Shift at night for easier nighttime reading experience.
