According to Engadget, a group of researchers have determined that manufacturers should include a bedtime mode on technology to help promote restful sleep.

“A faster and more tenable solution would be for manufacturers to ensure that software design is optimized when night-time use is anticipated,” the report says. “All hardware devices allow an automatic “bedtime mode” that shifts blue and green light emissions to yellow and red as well as reduces backlight/light intensity.”

Researchers admit that getting people to remove their smartphones and tablets from the bedroom is a big ask, especially for teenagers and adults who “make their own choices and are often influenced by peer and work pressures.” By asking phone makers to take “more responsibility” and include automated solutions in their products, experts believe you could enjoy a better night’s sleep without having to change your smartphone habits.
