Great! I'll be trying this out tonight. Normally I set minimum brightness and use f.lux with the candle setting which makes everything dark orange and easy on the eyes. Greyscale+Invert colours is nice(and I have a flipswitch for it) but it's only good if the thing I'm reading is on a bright background. Either way, it's nice having the option. I just hope my home button doesn't get angry with me :)

Thank you! I thought I had exhausted all the options within Apple settings. I learned a couple new things from this. Great trick.
