How to Enable Dark Mode in tvOS 10 on Apple TV

Dark Mode is a magnificent feature in tvOS 10 which makes watching TV more convenient at night and also prevents eyes from being exposed to the high resolution screen.

Agreed, tvOS 10 has some interesting features like much-improved search, single-sign-on authentication, Apple TV remote app for iOS devices, better Siri capabilities etc. However, Dark Mode has beaten them all in terms of attracting more attention.

Being very fond of movies and reality shows, I enjoy watching them at night. The only thing that comes in the way of my enjoyment is the high-resolution screen of TV. There have been quite a few times when I had to stop watching movies due to the straining or burning of my eyes. Fortunately, it’s no longer the case now.

Dark Mode has been available on Mac for quite some time. I am pretty happy that Apple has brought it on Apple TV as well. Frankly speaking, this feature is more profound on TV than on Mac due to some limitations.

Just like a lot of iPhone users, I had been eagerly waiting for Dark Mode to arrive in iOS 10. However, that was not to be. As per reports, this much-awaited feature is currently being tested and could well arrive on iPhone in near future.

In the meantime, you can use Color Filters and Display Accommodations in order to make viewing a bit eyes on your iOS device running iOS 10.
