How to Enable Dark Mode in iOS 12 or Earlier 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 12 or iOS 11 on iPhone and iPad.

macOS Mojave and iOS 12 were introduced together. Mojave got a full-featured dark mode for Mac, but that’s not the case with iOS. Invert Colors option is present since long, which works similar to dark mode on iPhone and iPad, but it has its own set of flaws. It cannot be actually called a full-fledged dark mode, but it is more of a workaround.

Slightly hidden under the Settings is an excellent looking “Dark Mode” on iPhone or iPad running iOS 12 or earlier. 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. Anyway, you can now easily enable/disable dark mode in iOS 12 on your iPhone and iPad; based on your convenience. Enough talk about this all-new feature? Let’s get to know how it works!

  • Smart Invert: Once it’s activated, it reverses the colors of the display except for media, images. It also works with the apps that support dark color styles.
  • Classic Invert: It allows you to simply reverse colors of the display. (It’s the one that’s existed for long.)
