    How to get Dark Mode on your iPhone and iPad

    A proper dark mode has yet to arrive on iOS. But for now, we can use Smart Invert to achieve a similar effect.

    A proper dark mode on iOS has been a wish for many users for some time now, a wish that’s only grown more fervent since Apple released an iPhone with an OLED display that could really take advantage of a true dark mode. Though no true dark mode yet exists on iOS, we have something similar now called Smart Invert.

    Like the classic inversion mode, Smart Invert on iOS inverts the colors across the system on your iPhone or iPad. But unlike classic invert, Smart Invert doesn’t flip the colors on images and other media, as well as some apps that already use some kind of dark color scheme. So the colors on your iOS device will be changed such as white becoming black, but your photos and videos will look as they normally do.

    How to turn on Smart Invert on your iPhone or iPad

    1. Open Settings on your iPhone or iPad.
    2. Tap General.
    3. Tap Accessibility.

      Open Settings, tap General, tap Accessibility

    4. Tap Display Accommodations.
    5. Tap Invert Colors.
    6. Tap the switch next to Smart Invert to flip it to the ‘on’ position.

      Tap Display Accommodations, tap Invert Colors, tap Smart Invert switch

    The colors on your iOS device will now be inverted. This is the closest thing we’ve got to a true dark mode on iOS right now, but this isn’t dark mode like you’ll find on your Mac. Smart Invert is a feature meant to improve visual accessibility.
