With iOS 10 preview in the hands of the developers, it is almost every day that we come across a new feature. We have already heard about features like storage optimization, new wake alarm, revamped Apple Music and improved iMessage to name a few. Yet another feature Apple didn’t announce at WWDC 2016 has been revealed, which will make using the iPhone easy on the eyes in the dark.

The new feature, called Dark Mode, turns all the whites on iOS to black. The idea is to have a less blinding display when you want to look at your iPhone in the dark. The developers have found dedicated dark mode in apps like clock, iBooks, Safari, Alarm, iMessage and iTunes among others. It is unclear at the moment whether third-party app developers will also get the option to implement Dark Mode in their apps.

This is not an entirely unique iOS feature, and the likes of OnePlus 3 too have a dark mode theme with a similar aim. This isn’t the first time Apple is introducing a few for bedtime readers either. Earlier this year with iOS 9.3 upgrade, Apple introduced the Night Shift mode. As the name suggests, this feature will automatically change the display’s color temperature to warm at night.
Apple’s iOS 10 developer preview is already out, while the public beta is slated to release sometime next month. Apple demoed 10 new iOS 10 features at WWDC including improved lock screen, iMessage, revamped Apple Music and third-party integration for Siri. Since then developers have come across features that were not announced by Apple. These include storage optimization, smart alarm, inline video playback, and adjustable flashlight intensity among others.
