The study, conducted by researchers from the University of Manchester, argues that we encounter more yellow light during the day while twilight is bluer, and thus, our bodies are more likely to associate with blue light with bedtime.

It suggests that the Night Shift feature should be doing the opposite of what it does by using dim, cooler lights in the evening and bright, warmer lights in the day.
