Eagerly waiting for “Dark Mode” in iOS 11 on iPhone? Here’s how to enable dark mode on iPhone X, iPhone 8 – 8 Plus and older in iOS 11/11.1/11.2.We always wanted a Dark Mode from a long time but now Apple has added the most awaited Dark Mode in iOS 11 as hidden feature with the function name called “Smart Invert Colors”.
Smart Invert colors reverses the color of the display, except for images, media and some apps that use dark color styles.
iOS 11 gained some cool features like new control center, new features on iMessage, new Siri voices, battery life, animation with lot more features like new emojis, return of 3D touch app switcher and more. iOS 11 is now gained some more versions like iOS 11.1 snd iOS 11.2 beta 2 with many functions added.
Previously, we even created a Dark Mode of our own by inverting the colors to classic on Accessibility settings. It worked pretty well but at some part it did not do as well as we wanted.
