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!
How to Enable/Disable Dark Mode (Smart Invert) in iOS 12 and iOS 11 on iPhone and iPad
Step #1. Launch Settings app on your iOS device → Tap on General.
Step #2. Tap on Accessibility → Next, you need to tap on Display Accommodations.
Step #3. Now, tap on Invert Colors → Next up, you have two options:
- 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.)
Step #4. You have to toggle the switch next to Smart Invert.
That’s it! You have successfully enabled dark mode on your iOS device. Now, watch videos, browse the internet and do all sort of activities that bring plenty of fun to you. This time, your eyes won’t burn or feel strained out. And, this is what makes it so handy.
