How to enable dark mode on Apple TV

Written By Jignesh Reviewed By Apple TV How-to 3 Min Read

I am fond of movies and TV Shows. With the launch of Apple TV+ now, I have my eyes set on some more great additional programs. After a day of work, I enjoy watching these or the new Netflix movies at night. This is where the dark mode on Apple TV plays a significant role. It makes the TV background appearance dark and thus comfortable on the eyes.

On the other side, the light background appears to pierce the eyes when the room lights are off, and the TV screen is at considerable brightness. So, enabling dark mode on Apple TV is a godsend. Here is how to turn it on.

Turn on dark mode in settings app on Apple TV

Step #1. Launch the Settings app on your Apple TV.

Step #2. Now, go to General →  Appearance.

Step #3. From here, out of Light, Dark or Automatic, select Dark.

To disable Dark Mode on Apple TV, select Light from here.

Pro Tip: You may also set it to Automatic. Apple TV will ask for your location, and then it will automatically switch between Light and Dark mode. During the day, it will be Light, and at night it will change to Dark. Convenient. Right!

Turn on dark mode on Apple TV Using Siri

Siri is a smart assistant. It can perform a number of tasks quickly, conveniently and effortlessly just by voice command. You can use Siri to turn on dark mode on your Apple TV.

To do so, launch Siri on your Apple TV and ask it ‘Turn on Dark mode.

You may also ask Siri to turn it off by saying ‘Turn off Dark Mode.

That’s it!

Wrapping up…

These were the two easy ways to enable and disable Dark mode on Apple TV. People had been asking for this mode on iPhone and Mac too. Finally, every Apple Product has this dark appearance. It makes using the device comfortable at night. I hope you have a pleasant experience of watching Apple TV. Share your thoughts in the comments below.
