Smart Invert: Smart Invert reverses the colors on the display, except for images, media, and some apps that use dark color styles.

Classic invert: Classic Invert reverses all screen colors on the display.

Switch the Smart Invert or Classic invert toggle to the ON position. Your iPhone screen will display the inverted image immediately. Note that you must choose either smart invert or the classic invert option, you can't have both on at the same time.
