How to activate the dark mode on iPhone X, Xs, Xs Max and XR

Whenever I decide to catch up on some of my fun videos at night or use my smartphone extensively in dark environments, I make sure to activate Dark Mode on my iPhone Xs Max for a couple of main reasons. First, it improves the viewing experience and also protects the eyes from burning.

And the second one, it also slightly extends the battery life. In addition, the OLED screen takes full advantage of this feature to enhance your display in a big way. However, you can enable Dark Mode not only on the iPhone X, Xs, Xs Max but also on the iPhone XR LCD. Lets go!

Sticky note: “Reverse Smart”, also known as dark mode, has been available since iOS 11 . Therefore, you can take advantage of this feature on any of your iPhone or iPad with the supported iOS version. Basically, it reverses the colors on the screen, except for the media and images, so that your eyes can see the content better.

Step 1. Start the application Settings on your device † Now, tap General.


Step 2. Next, you must take advantage of Accessibility.

>Stage 4. Then you must play Invert colors.

>Step 5. Finally, turn on the switch next to Smart Invert.


There is another feature called “Classic Inversion” that is also very useful for improving visualization. Unlike Smart Invert, it completely reverses the colors on the screen, including the images and media. I think this feature is more suitable for reading articles, as it keeps distraction at bay. Therefore, if you want to read your stories with complete peace of mind, Classic Invert would be the way to go.
