“Dark Mode” is one of the most appreciable features on Mac. Once enabled, it changes the look of Mac interface; making it much easier to view the screen at night.
Whenever I use Mac at night, I make sure to enable Dark Mode. Though it may be limited in terms of functionality, it offers enough protection to prevent the eyes from straining. Here is how it works.
Points to Consider
- When Dark Mode is activated, the pale translucent background in the Dock becomes a lot darker.
- The drop-down menus in the Menu bar across macOS is also turned dark.
- Currently, only Apple's own apps support Dark Mode in the Menu bar. Though the third party apps display a dark menu, it lacks the see-through effect.
- Dark Mode doesn't have any impact on other translucent parts of the macOS interface.

How to Disable Dark Mode in macOS Sierra on Mac

I wish Dark Mode arrives on iOS devices as well sooner than later. Though there are features like Color Filters, Display Accommodations which are very helpful, they don't quite match the quality of Dark Mode. Hopefully, Apple fulfills the wish of many iOS users who have been eagerly waiting for it for long.
