070 - Dark Mode

Share this Tip

If you want your phone to be less bright at night or if you just prefer a moodier look, try Dark Mode.

Go to Settings

Scroll down and tap on Display & Brightness

Under Appearance, tap on Dark

You’ll immediately notice that most of the colours are inverted from white to black or dark greys.

On the home screen our background is now a dark theme.

Returning to Notes we see a black background with white text and a grey keyboard with white lettering.

If we return to Settings we can make Dark mode automatic.

By default it changes based on sunset and sunrise, but you can choose a custom schedule if you prefer to lock in the time changes.
