Just like millions of iPhone and Mac users, I had been waiting for the arrival of Dark Mode in iOS 10 and macOS Sierra. Unfortunately, Apple held this much-awaited feature back as it’s still a work in development.
When enabled, dark mode turns the screen into black translucent style. As a result, the screen doesn’t strain the eyes; making it a lot easier for users to use their device at night.
Developer Guilherme Rambo has posted a tutorial showing how to enable dark mode in some stock apps on macOS Sierra. All the Mac users who are willing to make the most of this highly user-friendly feature would love to get started with it.
Things You Need to Know:
- The process doesn’t work with all apps.
- Using this process, you will be able to apply Dark Mode in only stock apps such as Safari, System Preferences, Finder and Text Edit.
- You will have to apply dark mode individually in each app.
- When you close the app, the dark mode will be disabled.
How to Apply Dark Mode in Apps on macOS Sierra
- Your Mac must be running OS X El Capitan or Later.
- Xcode and Command Line Tools must be installed on your device.
- System Integrity Protection must be turned off on your Mac.
