2. How to enable dark mode in the Control Center
Going back and forth between the home screen and the settings can be a chore. Apple was willing to activate a quick shortcut to the dark mode directly in the Control Center. To turn it on, open Settings and tap Customize Controls.
At this point, I would recommend that you also enable the Access in Apps option. Thus, you can enable / disable the dark mode from any screen using the Control Center, even when using an application. You know, in case you do not like what you see.
Scroll down to find the Dark Mode option and press the tiny "+" icon to add it. No need to save anything.
Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to access the Control Center and manage the dark mode settings.
3. How to plan the dark mode
Some users still like the bright mode, while others prefer to use dark mode only after dark. They just want to protect their eyes from the harmful white light that our new best friend emits. Go back to Settings and press Display and Brightness. This time, press the automatic option. A new Options tab will appear.
You can choose Sunrise to Sunrise to tell your iPhone to use your location data and weather details to determine when to enable dark mode. Another option is Custom Program, in which you can set a calendar to switch between light and dark modes.
I just put it in dark mode. I like it better like that. Given the time we spend in front of the screens, this could help in the long run. In addition, it looks cool.
4. Where everything works Dark mode works under iOS 13
Do not expect too much of this new option. The dark mode works very well on the Home screen, the Control Center, the settings and all the applications developed in-house by Apple. This means that it also works in Apple Music, Notes, Reminders and Calendar, for example.
It does not work in third-party applications such as Google Photos or any other application over which Apple has no control. Trello and IFTTT are some examples.
This could lead to inconsistencies. You enjoy a darker screen when, suddenly, you switch to another application and the white light blinds you in the middle of the night. It's a horror. A good number of applications have now joined the dark side, so just check the application settings to see if there is an option to activate it at the moment. If no, why not submit an application?
5. Why use dark mode
You probably already know it, so let me add something to that. In fact, your attention may not have drawn your attention to details such as how Dark Mode can save up to 60% of iPhone battery life. That's not all. Google did some research on the subject and found similar end results. To be honest, it's a lot of battery life and the less you have to use the agreement, the better.
The dark mode can also benefit your eyes by reducing the voltage, especially when you look at the screen in the middle of the night with the light off. But there are studies that have shown that the dark mode is not the savior that everyone wants it to be. This is not the hero we deserve, nor the hero we need. You must blink enough, rest them by storing your phone regularly and limit the screen time. That's why dark mode can not help you if you're addicted.
Join the dark side
More and more developers are integrating into the dark mode in their applications, their software and even their websites. It is refreshing to learn how this can help solve some common problems we face today. But as noted above, this can only help you a lot. In the end, it all comes down to healthy lifestyle choices and lifestyle.
