Part 1: iOS 11 Dark Mode Review

iOS 11 Dark Mode enables inverting the font colors of your iPhone. In case you don’t know, the default font of all your iDevices is Helvetica which changes to white in place of black resulting in the white translucent layers being substituted with black color translucent layers. Dark Mode makes your Mac’s, Apple TV’s, and iDevices look and feel the same and creates easy night-time watching for enhanced vision late hours.

Another extremely important point is that iOS 11 dark mode allows breathing space and an amnesty for your eyes in low light settings, like cafeterias, pubs, and even exhibition halls–locations where you might find yourself glancing to read.  Therefore, this feature decreases the eyestrain and specifically for old age users after their forties, they start facing eyesight issues so for them this mode is a great innovation and extremely beneficial.  Adding on, we feel this model looks pretty amazing too.

We feel not having this mode harms the user experience.  So, it’s time for a worldwide Dark Mode that will make the eyes as our devoted reading apps.  It is evident that we operate our iPhone all the time–when taking a ride in a car at night, on overnight trips, and mostly in bed next to a sleeping person.  If and when Apple provides a dark mode within its operating system (iOS) and accessible for all apps, viewing our iDevices at night and in the low/lower light state will no more be an issue or disturbance.
