How to enable dark mode in iOS 11

iOS 11,s Dark Mode has an awesome Smart Invert feature and it can save your eyes.

To enable iOS 11 hidden dark mode

  • Open Settings on your iPhone.
  • Head over to General > Accessibility > Display Accommodations > Invert Colors and turn on Smart Invert.

 

Safari still inverts the colours of images when you’re using Smart Invert, so browsing the web isn’t something you would like to do with it. Also, the Weather app, which is already a bit dark, inverses its colour and appears predominantly white. Strangely, the Clock app — which also is already dark — is smart enough to retain its black colour scheme.

But, hey, this is just the first developer beta of iOS 11. Maybe these kinks will get worked out before the public beta release later this month.

All in all, it’s a little bit wonky as of now. Here’s hoping Apple perfects Smart Invert and turns it into a true dark mode in time for the final release of iOS 11 this fall.
