Reports about Apple bringing a system-wide Dark Mode in iOS 13 are already making the rounds on the internet. Folks over at 9to5mac now claim to have gotten their hands on screenshots of the much-talked about feature. The media platform says that Dark Mode on iOS 13 can be enabled in the Settings app or by switching the toggle in the Control Center. It’s not clear whether one needs to add the option in the Control Center or it’ll already be available in the OS update.
Once the Dark Mode is enabled, users could see noticeable changes on the Home screen itself. The Dock adopts a dark background, and it is possible that Apple may include new wallpapers that work better with the mode, the report said. Apps will also wear a new look. For example, the Apple Music app is seen with a black background and white text on top. The tab bar at the bottom also switches from transparent white to transparent black.
Another place that users will see a change is in the interface that appears just after taking a screenshot. Earlier the UI had a gray background, but now it shows a blurred wallpaper with small markup tools at the bottom. Reportedly, the same interface has also been redesigned for iPads. 9to5mac says that Apple might use a true black background, which is likely to positively affect the battery life of iPhones with an OLED display.
The report also mentions the Reminders app getting a major redesign with iOS 13. The redesign is reportedly coming to macOS 10.15 as well. According to a shared image, the new Reminders app has a large sidebar with separate boxes for “Today”, “Scheduled”, “Flagged” and “All” on iPad. The app also uses the SF UI Rounded font introduced to iOS with Wallet on iOS 12.2, the report said.
Apple is expected to announce these updates in iOS 13 at the WorldWide Developers Conference 2019 (WWDC 2019) that will be hosted from June 3 to June 7 this year. The company is expected to make a bunch of announcements at the event like the next iteration of watchOS, macOS, tvOS and more.
