    When I read a book in pdf the ipad is too bright which makes reading nearly impossible.
    Is there any app that simulates or become less bright the ipad?

    Thanks

    What app are you using?

    If you are reading in the iBooks app you can change the brightness by tapping on the AA icon. Most other app optimized for reading will have similar brightness controls, as well as themes like sepia or night mode.

    Edit: When viewing a PDF in iBooks, it's a little sun icon. My mistake.

    Failing that, you can always go to Settings > Display & Brightness to turn it down. If it Auto-Brightness is turned on the iPad will adjust to some extent, depending on how much light is detects in it's surroundings. That smaller dot next tot he front camera is a light sensor.

    For
    quicker access, swipe up from the bottom edge of the screen for the Control Center. It has a brightness control slider. Control center may not be available in an open app. If it isn't you can turn it on in Settings > Control Center.

    In the Kindle app, you see the same sun icon to adjust screen brightness. It's also at the top right.

    You might also try inverting colors. In Settings > General > Accessibility, the last item is Accessibility Shortcut. Set the triple-click to Invert Colors. Then, triple-clicking the Home button will present white on black, which you may find easier to read.

    I use PDFreader.

    I'll try all - I guess the best is something like sepia. I must look for a app with this option.

    If you know a app with this option I apretiate.

    Thanks a lot

    PDF Expert has a sepia mode that works with PDF files.

    It's more about annotation and basic editing, but it makes a decent PDF reader as well.

    Look at this app:
    PerfectReader Classic - Beautiful PDF Reader with Unique Text Reflow, Sepia/Night/Daytime reading modes
    https://appsto.re/us/IheLz.i

    Maybe that's what you need. This is the free version. There's a paid one as well.
