Dark mode is an “easier to see” setting that chooses a light color on a dark background.

So if an app is white with black text, it will be swapped for black with white text.

This keeps you from being dazzled by the light of your phone in the dark – which often happens in use Iphone in the morning or at night.

A new leak suggests that the feature could also work for all sites, including on a site-by-site basis – not just apps.

Dark mode is a much requested feature and already exists on Apple devices.

Dark Mode first properly launched on the iPhone in 2019, with Apple’s iOS 13 update.

This feature allows users to choose a system-wide dark mode for iPhone.

That means the entire user interface, all Apple apps, and supported third-party apps will use a light-dark color scheme.

But details from Apple’s new update suggest that new settings for Dark Mode are coming soon.

In a 9to5Mac reportit revealed new changes to WebKit.

It’s the browser engine Apple built to power Safari – the default option on every iPhone.

The code for WebKit is open source, which means it’s publicly viewable.

In this code, 9to5Mac finds references to “overriding the system palette with a per-site option”.

It shows that websites can not only take cues from the system about what color to display, but also let certain sites ignore it.

Sadly, we don’t know exactly when this feature will be available.

Features are now labeled as TBA, to “be informed”.

However, Apple is expected to announce its next-generation iOS 16 later this year.

Apple will almost certainly announce iOS 16 on June 7, at its annual WWDC event.

In the coming weeks, Apple will begin allowing developers – and subsequently the public – to try out new updates in a series of beta tests.

Finally, iOS 16 will most likely launch in September, alongside the long-rumored iPhone 14.
