iOS 12 Dark Mode: Everything You Want to Know


For a very long time now, Apple has given iPhone users the ability to invert colors on the screen. Later, they introduced the grayscale mode in iOS 8, the Night Shift mode in iOS 9 and then the red screen filter in iOS 10. The dark mode was added for the iOS 11 and iOS 12 users. The iOS Dark Mode usually inverts the color of the background and many other components of various apps in iOS from light color shades to black and dark grey.

Unlike the previous "classic invert", the new "Smart Invert" does not reverse everything and particularly the images, media and all the other iPhone apps that already use dark color styles. Once the dark mode is enabled, it provides the device user with a reverse color scheme that is intended to improve readability.
