Discover Relief from Eye Fatigue: Uncover the Secret iOS 17 Feature

Elevate your iPhone experience with iOS 17, introducing novel enhancements like StandBy mode and autocorrect upgrades. Among these, a discreet gem, Screen Distance, promises to safeguard your precious eyesight.

Guardianship for Your Eyes:

  • Apple’s iOS 17 brings a hidden feature, Screen Distance, dedicated to preserving your visual well-being.
  • Like a caring parent advising you to step back from the TV, this feature alerts you when your iPhone or iPad is held too close to your face.
  • While proximity alone may not harm your eyes, it can induce stress and irritation, warns health organization Cedars-Sinai.
  • Enter Screen Distance, designed to alleviate eyestrain and, according to Apple, potentially lower the risk of myopia (nearsightedness).

Activating Screen Distance:

  1. Navigate to Settings.
  2. Select Screen Time.
  3. Choose Screen Distance.

Guided Setup Screens:

  • Upon entering Screen Distance, encounter two informative screens illustrating its purpose and functionality.
  • Tap Continue on both screens, and Screen Distance activates, presenting these screens only during the initial visit.

Intervention for Eye Safety:

  • Experience a screen block with the message “iPhone May Be Too Close” after prolonged proximity to your face.
  • The screen obstruction persists until you adjust the distance, displaying a checkmark. Tap Continue to remove the block.

Disabling Screen Distance:

  • If the alerts become more bothersome than beneficial, here’s how to disable Screen Distance:
  1. Access Settings.
  2. Navigate to Screen Time.
  3. Choose Screen Distance.
  4. Toggle off the Screen Distance switch.

Embrace the flexibility to hold your iPhone close without interruptions. Reclaim control over your screen proximity, ensuring both your visual comfort and technological freedom.
