How do you invert colors on iPhone?

Answered by Phillip Nicastro

To invert the colors on your iPhone, follow these steps:

1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone. You can find the Settings app on your home screen, usually represented by a gray gear icon.

2. Scroll down the list of options and tap on “Accessibility”. The Accessibility settings contain various options to customize your iPhone’s display and functionality for different needs.

3. In the Accessibility menu, scroll down again and select “Display & Text Size”. This option allows you to adjust the display settings on your iPhone, including inverting colors.

4. Scroll down further until you reach the “Vision” section. Here, you’ll find two options for inverting colors: “Smart Invert” and “Classic Invert”.

5. Choose either “Smart Invert” or “Classic Invert” based on your preference.

– Smart Invert: This option intelligently inverts colors, preserving the original appearance of images and media while inverting other elements like text and UI elements. It’s particularly useful for reducing eye strain while browsing or using apps with predominantly white backgrounds.

– Classic Invert: This option simply inverts all colors on your iPhone’s display, including images and media. It provides a more traditional inverted color scheme, where white becomes black and vice versa.

6. Once you’ve selected your preferred option, it will take effect immediately. You can exit the Settings app and use your iPhone as usual, now with inverted colors.

It’s worth noting that inverting colors can have different effects on different apps and websites. Some apps may have their own color settings that override the system-wide color inversion, so the inversion may not be applied uniformly across all apps and content.

Inverting colors can be helpful for individuals with certain visual impairments, as it can improve readability and reduce eye strain. However, it may not be suitable for everyone, so feel free to experiment and see if it works well for you.
