Turn on dark mode in iOS 13 from the settings app or your control center. Finally, a simple way to enable system-wide dark mode is here, and owning an iPhone X isn't required!

Whether you want to give your eyes a break, save on battery, or change up the overall appearance of your iPhone or iPad, dark mode has you covered. Although the home screen remains relatively similar, you'll notice a significant difference with apps that use a lot of white space.
