There is a hidden feature on Apple’s iOS 17 and you need to know about it.

Podcast transcripts and Apple Cash virtual card numbers were two helpful new features that the iOS 17.4 update brought iPhone users in March.

However, the tech giant unveiled Screen Distance, a new feature that could help you take better care of your eyes, when it released iOS 17 in September, according to CNET.

Similar to a parent telling you to sit further back from the TV or computer screen, this function alerts you when you’re holding your iPhone or iPad too close to your face.

Despite the fact that placing a screen close to your face might not be harmful, Cedars-Sinai, a health organisation, states that it may cause stress and irritation to your eyes.

Fortunately, this new iOS 17 function tries to lessen eyestrain and may even cut your risk of developing myopia, or nearsightedness, according to Apple.

Here’s how to use the Screen Distance feature on iOS 17 and protect your eyes.
