Apple iOS 13 is coming this fall but before its arrival, the company is reminding the developers to prepare for it. Making them ready for one of the biggest changes, Apple wants to emphasize its importance. While explaining the basics of the Dark Mode, apple provides a link to documentation for how to support the new look.
The apps like Messages, Notes, and Apple Music will all get a new look with Dark Mode turned on. The dark theme helps protects your eyes from the traditional whiteness of the screens we’re accustomed too. This adds coolness to your eyes, making them gain lesser strain. Another benefit is, the apps with Dark Mode turned on, helps in increasing the battery life of your system.
While announcing the features of the iOS 13 on the WWDC 2019 stage, Apple talked about the importance of having such feature enabled. It said Dark Mode is a new look which is easy to implement, flexible and powerful.
Apple explains the Dark Mode will bring a dramatic look for iPhone and iPad. It can simply be turned on from Control Center or Siri. All apps built with the iOS 13 SDK will support Dark Mode. Apple also gives the freedom to developers to opt-out, in case they don’t want to support the new feature.
After several iOS 13 betas fed to the developers, Apple recently seeded the iOS 13.1, which was quite unexpected but it shows Apple is constantly adding efforts to iron out any issues that might have come during the betas of iOS 13. Notably, iOS 13.1 has brought some significant additions, including Shortcuts automation.
Reminding the developers to get ready for the biggest change ever depicts the public release of the iOS 13 isn’t too far from us.
