The American tech giant Apple on its annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) that took place on Monday in San Jose launched an array of new features that include a Mac Pro, iPadOS, dark mode for its iOS13, etc. The dark mode garnered much attention due to its claims at providing better control and allowing users to stay focused on their work. The feature is likely to be available by this fall to the users by downloading an app that shall have an owl as its icon.
Though the support websites don’t claim anything about the feature’s ability to save battery. According to a report published by the CNN business, most smartphones use an organic light emitting diode(OLED) that consumes less power than a regular white background. The dark background also claims to have a soothing effect on the eyes as it is designed specifically to make the screen appear easy for the eyes and benefits the sleep of the user.
According to the company’s support page, “The dark mode makes it easier to stay focused on your work because your content stands out while darkened controls and windows recede into the background.” The dark mode works with lots of apps and features such as Mail, Maps, Notes, Safari, etc. providing an enriched experience for those who like to read or work in the dark.
The dark mode has been popular with most of the leading global tech companies like Samsung Galaxy, platforms such as Twitter and browsers such as Google Chrome. However, Apple’s dark mode comes with specially built icons and a grey keyboard which provide a full dark-experience. The feature is reported to be working across iPhones, iPads and various apps from Apple. The feature included customization regarding its time and can be automatically turned on or off at evenings or any set time.
