Bloomberg reported earlier this week, that Apple will be releasing a new feature for iOS 13 this year, the Dark Mode. Dark mode is expected to be surprisingly popular, but what will it look like on iOS 13?
Milen Yanachkov on phoneArena said ”Don’t just invert whites, also subdue and limit other colors as much as possible. For example, instead of using solid, colorful toggles for various settings when they are enabled, a colorful outline can convey just as much information, without emitting unnecessary light.”
Apple’s new system dark mode was also added to macOS Mojave, which left unconfirmed rumors of Apple doing the same on iOS. This is somewhat surprising, as iPhones should benefit from this update more than Macs. Research has shown, that OLED pixels don’t need background color to produce more light, which is not necessary for the dark mode. Studies have also shown that dark mode is less fatiguing to llok at for long periods, and it’s less disruptive to the viewer’s sleep cycle
