How to Enable Dark Mode in iOS 11 on iPhone and iPad

After a long wait, Dark Mode has eventually embraced iOS! Navigate through this quick guide to enable Dark Mode in iOS 11 on iPhone and iPad.

Slightly hidden under the Settings is an excellent looking “Dark Mode” in iOS 11! I couldn’t be happier to see the most advanced OS making life enormously easy for iPhone users who love to use their device at night. And, I’m one of them who like checking out tweets and latest messages with the needed peace of mind before hitting the bed! Anyway, you can now easily enable/disable dark mode in iOS 11 on your iPhone and iPad; based on your convenience.

Interestingly, Apple hasn’t named this feature as “Dark Mode.” Instead, it has been termed as “Smart Invert.” If you have used iOS for long, you must be aware of “Invert Colors”—that simply reverses the colors of the display. Smart Invert has been included under its arms. Enough talk about this all new feature? Let’s get to know how it works!
