How to Enable Dark Mode in Safari on iPhone and iPad

Why should you eyes bear the brunt of your late-night reading? Enable dark mode in Safari on your iPhone and iPad to enhance your reading experience at nights and also safeguard your precious eyes from straining. Moreover, Apple's web browser offers multiple themes and fonts to let you customize a web page.

Even before hitting the sack, I like keeping an eye on what’s making the headlines everywhere. I prefer using Safari to browse a bit more efficiently. To ensure my eyes don’t burn or get strained out, I make sure to enable Dark Mode in Safari on my iPhone or iPad.

Apple’s web browser offers multiple themes to boost your reading experience. For instance, you can choose dark for a more convenient reading at nights and go for yellow if you wish to avoid brightness. And yes, there is also the grey theme to pick from which could be very handy if you don’t want to embrace darkness completely.
