It turns out that there are actual health benefits to 2700K bulbs in a home.

I suppose that explains the nighttime screen color shifting in iOS and Android.

I believe it is one of the reasons for color temp shifting in phones.
Another reason is that it helps when the color temp of the phone matches the ambient color temp.  Sunlight and offices tend to have a higher color temp.
Up until the introduction of compact fluorescents, most homes were lit by incandescent bulbs.  These tended to have a color temp around 2700K
