Whenever I decide to catch up with some of my fun-loving videos at night or use the smartphone extensively in the dark environments, I make sure to turn on Dark Mode on my iPhone Xs Max for a couple of main reasons. First and foremost, it enhances the viewing experience and also safeguards the eyes against burning.
And the second, it also slightly extends the battery life. Moreover, OLED display takes full advantage of this feature to bolster your viewing big time. However, you can enable Dark Mode not just on iPhone X, Xs, Xs Max but also on the LCD iPhone XR. Let’s get going!
How to Enable Dark Mode on iPhone X, Xs, Xs Max, and XR
Sticky note: “Smart Invert” aka dark mode has been available since iOS 11. So, you can take advantage of this feature on any of your iPhone or iPad running the supported iOS version. It basically reverses the colors of the display except for media and images to make it more soothing for your eyes to view content.
Step #1. Launch Settings app on your device → Now, tap on General.
Step #2. Next, you need to tap into Accessibility.
Step #3. Tap on Display Accommodations.
Step #4. Next up, you have to tap on Invert Colours.
Step #5. Finally, turn on the switch that’s right next to Smart Invert.
Voila! Check out the display of your iPhone. Doesn’t it look it really cool? Now, go ahead and enjoy movies, videos or browse the web with complete peace of mind.
There is another feature called “Classic Invert” that’s also very helpful in improving viewing. Unlike Smart Invert, it completely reverses the colors of the display including images and media. I find this feature more suitable for reading articles as it keeps distraction at bay. So, if you want to read your stories with complete peace of mind, Classic Invert would be the way to go.
How to Enable Classic Invert on iPhone X, Xs, Xs Max, and XR
Open Settings → General → Accessibility → Display Accommodations → Invert Colors.
Now, turn ON Classic Invert.
That’s it! You have turned on the vintage grayscale mode on your device.
So, that’s how you can take the full advantage of invert colors on your new iPhone to read and watch media more comfortably in dark environments. Aside from ramping up your viewing, it can also help the battery last a little longer. That’s what called killing two birds with one stone!
