For most users, including myself, iOS 13 is all about that fresh new dark mode. Just tap a simple button and boom, the lights go down, the white menus are now covered in darkness. This is an awesome feature if you have an iPhone with an OLED display too as it helps conserve a ton of battery life, and obviously, it looks cool too. But let's just stop with the praises and jump into how you can enable iOS 13 dark mode right now.

1. Launch the Settings app.

2. Scroll down a little and then tap on Display & Brightness.

3. Under the Appearance section there are two options: Light and Dark. Tap on Dark and you're all set.

You even have the option to schedule dark mode based on the time of day. You can set it to automatically kick in at sunset until sunrise or just have it work according to your wish in full manual mode.

Alternatively, you can enable iOS 13 dark mode using the Control Center. Simply swipe down from the top right hand corner, or swipe up if you have a device with a home button, then long press on the brightness indicator to reveal more options. Now simply select the Dark appearance option.

Last but not the least, you can totally use Siri to enable dark mode as well. Simply say 'Hey Siri' or hold the power button, and say 'Enable dark mode.'

iOS 13 dark mode

There are a ton of reasons why I would use dark mode over light any time of the time. But, the single best use-case is when it comes to conserving battery life. With all those black pixels, an OLED display is essentially powered off, which means that you can zip through the day without having to worry about battery life that much. But keep one thing in mind: the iOS 13 dark mode effect truly comes into play if the apps you are using support the dark mode API too. This means that whenever you enable dark mode on your iPhone or iPad, the app should automatically go dark with it, if it doesn't, then well, wait for updates to arrive.
