As a student and writer, I spend a lot of time on my Mac. My eyes are very sensitive to the continuous artificial light, often causing eye strain and giving me headaches. Even with True Tone, sometimes my late night study sessions require a little less light. By monitoring and adjusting your display brightness, reducing it when less brightness is needed, can also save your Mac battery-life.

However, whether you are on your computer a lot, experience eye strain, want to save battery-life, or have other display brightness preferences, you can easily adjust your Mac Display Brightness in under 2 minutes. Let's get started!

If you are anything like me, you don't always work between 9 and 5. Sometimes, I get my best work done in the middle of the night with nothing but the display to light up the room.
