Ever since Apple revealed in early June that the long-awaited dark mode would be coming to iOS 13, the Apple ecosystem has been abuzz with excitement. Most popular websites and apps have a dark mode, which is very popular with the younger generation and provides greater customization for the user interface. This allows different users to pick and choose from a wider array of looks, rather than being forced to stick with one particular thing.
It’s not just about aesthetics – dark mode is also an extremely practical feature. Studies have shown that interfaces, when switched to a dark mode setting, can be far easier on the eyes, as they give off a far less harsh light. This reduces iris strain and fatigue, which lets one make use of their device without having to take prescribed breaks too often. Additionally, having dark mode has many benefits for the device itself. Firstly, it reduces hardware degradation – your screen’s pixels will have higher longevity, and the battery degradation rate will decrease. This is because having thousands of white pixels on drains battery faster than having black or grey pixels. This, in turn, means that your average battery life will improve, allowing you to make use of your phone for longer between charges. Dark mode could be the difference between your phone dying and having that extra 5%, which you never know when you might need.
Here’s a step by step guide that will show you how to enable dark mode on your iPhone after you’ve installed the new iOS 13 update.
How to Turn On Dark Mode in iOS 13
Step 1: First, open the Settings app, and scroll down to the “Display & Brightness” section. Tap the section to enter your display and brightness settings, where you can select the dark mode option.
Step 2: After you’re in the Display & Brightness section, there will be a section on the top labeled “Appearance”. This is where you can select whether you want dark mode or not. Tap the icon on the right to enter dark mode (as depicted in the screenshot on the left), and tap the icon on the left to return to the standard light mode.
In this menu, you can also change other settings such as True Tone and Night Shift to customize the way your display looks further.
That’s all, folks! It’s very simple to enable dark mode on iOS 13, and it’s a refreshing look that’s sure to stun.
How to Customize the Dark Mode Feature
Did you know there are more customizable options available for the dark mode option? Simply tap the toggle labeled “Automatic” below the dark mode selection section to avail further options for how you want your user interface to look. The default automatic option is “Light Until Sunset”, which will automatically turn on dark mode when the sun sets and will disable dark mode when the sun rises. By tapping the “Options” section, you can further customize the timings for which you want the dark mode to be automatically toggled on and off. The Appearance Schedule window for dark mode makes it quick and easy to set your own timings.
Dark mode has been marketed as the primary feature for iOS 13, and it’s easy to see why. With a beautiful new look and increased display customizability, this brings a fresh new touch to the operating system iPhone users around the globe already know and love. We hope that this guide was helpful in showing you how to enable dark mode – be sure to put it to good use! Don’t use your phone with light mode enabled for too long in order to reduce the strain on your eyes, as well as the battery of your phone. Using dark more regularly will reduce the maintenance required on your iPhone, and may save you from battery, processor or screen replacement costs down the line.
