While we’re accustomed to seeing our screens in full colour, exploring the shades of black, white, and grey can actually be beneficial – especially on our smartphones.

Firstly, individuals with severe colour blindness will find greyscale mode incredibly helpful. It eliminates the challenge of distinguishing certain colours, making the screen more user-friendly. Even for the rest of us, greyscale can be a visual relief, particularly at night when it’s easier on the eyes. Plus, if you switch your videos to greyscale, it might finally convince you to put down your phone and catch some much-needed sleep!

Extra sleep sounds good right? Here’s how to activate greyscale mode on your iPhone or Samsung Galaxy.


Greyscale on an iPhone


Switching to greyscale on an iPhone is a breeze. You can find it as a feature in the Accessibility section.

  • Select Settings > Accessibility > Display & Text Size > Colour Filters
  • Toggle Colour Filters on and select Greyscale


Greyscale on a Samsung Galaxy phone


You can also turn on Samsung’s greyscale feature using its accessibility tools.

  • Go to Settings > Accessibility > Visibility enhancements
  • Select Colour correction and tap Greyscale
  • Toggle colour adjustment on at the top of the page

It’s as easy as that! Enjoy the visual relief!
