Advanced Brightness Slider tweak dims screen further

What is Advanced Brightness Slider?
Advanced Brightness Slider is a tweak that allows you to further dim the screen on your iPhone below the minimum brightness level set by Apple. This tweak integrates with the brightness module in Control Center, giving you more control over the brightness of the screen.
After installation is completed, the Advanced Brightness Slider tweak creates a dedicated preference pane in the Settings app to toggle the tweak on and off, respring, and set the threshold value. The tweak is very simple, and it doesn't offer any additional features.
Additionally, the Advanced Brightness Slider allows you to set the threshold at which the brightness slider transitions from adjusting screen brightness to modifying the intensity of the Reduce White Point setting. By default, the 30% of the slider controls the intensity of the Reduce White Point setting, while the top 70% adjusts the normal screen brightness.
The tweak utilizes the Reduce White Point setting, which can be found in the Accessibility menu under Display & Text Size. When the brightness slider is adjusted to a certain threshold, the screen brightness is set to zero and the Reduce White Point setting is activated. Continuing to adjust the brightness below this threshold will then modify the intensity of the Reduce White Point setting, rather than the screen brightness that is already set to the minimum level.
To apply changes made and enable or disable the tweak, it's required to respring your iDevice. Changing the threshold value is applied automatically, and it doesn't require any other action.
Advanced Brightness Slider should work with all modern jailbreaks running iOS 13, iOS 14, and iOS 15. Palera1n and XinaA15 jailbreaks for iOS 15 – iOS 15.7.2 are also supported. It also integrates with Control Center alternatives such as Prism and BigSurCenter.
Jonas Schiefner, the developer behind Advanced Brightness Slider, released the tweak as an open source project through the GitHub Repository. The tweak source code was written in Objective-C programming language as it uses theos libraries to hook into the system.
In conclusion, the Advanced Brightness Slider is a useful tweak that allows you to further dim the screen on your device and adjust the intensity of the Reduce White Point setting. This can be helpful in reducing eye strain, and extending battery life of your iPhone.
