The Short Version
- Open the Camera app
- Click on the arrow

Open the Camera app
Unlock your iPhone and open up your Camera app to start the process.
Click on the arrow
Click on the small white arrow, it’s above the camera module and sits in the middle.
Click on the Night Mode button
From the menu that is presented at the bottom of the screen, click on the Night Mode button. It looks like the moon and it is the second button in from the right.
Adjust Night Mode
Just above the camera button will be a small adjustable timer for Night Mode. If you go towards the left, it will turn off, though if you go towards the right you can pick a timer for Night Mode. Depending on the environment you are in you will be offered Auto and a timer of either one, two or three seconds. If you are already in a dark environment your iPhone will automatically pick the setting that will work best.
Take a photo
Once you are happy with the settings, click on the camera button to capture the image.
Hold still until the photo has been taken so Night Mode can work. If you move the camera out of focus when your photo may be blurry and not as detailed. You can watch the timer go down during the photo being taken, but we recommend moving only when the photo has been saved to your album.
Check your photo
Check on your photo to make sure you’re happy with it. Feel free to take another photo if you feel like the Night Mode has not done enough.
