Apple is adding system-wide Dark Mode to iOS 13
System-wide dark mode on iOS 13
Even though science says we’re better off with dark-on-white for our screens, enough of the minority is vocal enough for Dark Mode to be in everything now. System-wide dark mode came to macOS last year, so this year it’s iOS’s turn.
- All system UI will be darkened when the feature is turned on
- All native apps will also benefit from Dark Mode
- Tweaked to give a “great viewing experience” in low-light environments
- It’ll also be coming to the iPad, with the new iPadOS
- Third-party developers can also build their apps to use the new feature
- Users can schedule Dark Mode to turn on at a set time or at sunset
Questionable science about eye-strain aside, it’s true that using dark themes on OLED devices have an appreciable effect on battery life. We’ll see just how much when dark mode arrives later this year on both iOS and Android.
