I enjoy watching movies and TV shows in Dark Mode in the night or dark room on Apple TV. The obvious advantage of this feature is that even after watching flicks for hours, my eyes don't strain. With tvOS 11, viewing experience has got even better. The latest version of tvOS lets you set your Apple TV to switch between light and dark mode automatically.
So, you no longer need to change the suitable display mode on your Apple TV manually. The digital media player switches the light as per the time. For instance, the set-top box will switch to the dark mode in the night and embrace light mode during the daytime.
How to Switch Between Light and Dark Mode on Apple TV Automatically
Step #1. Open Settings app on your Apple TV.
Step #2. Now, head over to General.
Step #3. Select Appearance subsection.
Step #4. Next, you have three options:
Light: It is the default appearance.
Dark: It lets you enable darker Home screen background as well as menus to make movie posters, icons and other information more convenient to view at night.
Automatic: It automatically sets the media player to change its appearance from Light mode to Dark mode based on.
Tip: To make the “Automatic” setting function properly, make sure to set the Time Zone toggle to Always in Settings → General → Privacy → Location Services to assist your device in determining your local time accurately.
