Guide to use Dark Mode on iOS devices

Guide to turn on Dark Mode on iPhone

Step 1. Launch Settings app on your iOS device → Tap on General.

Step 2. Tap on Accessibility → Next, you need to tap on Display Accommodations.

Step 3. Now, tap on Invert Colors → Next up, you have two options:

  • Smart Invert: Once it’s activated, it reverses the colors of the display except for media, images. It also works with apps like SimplyE that support dark color styles.
  • Classic Invert: It allows you to simply reverse colors of the display. (It’s the one that’s existed for a long time.)

Step 4. You have to toggle the switch next to Smart Invert.

Now, browse your library catalog, view items read and listen to audiobooks as needed. This time, Dark Mode may help your eyes not burn or feel strained even after using the device for a long period. And, this is what makes it so handy.

Later, if you decide to disable this feature, all you need to do is come back to the same setting and then turn off the switch for Smart Invert in the end.


How to Turn ON/OFF Dark Mode Quickly By Triple-Clicking the Home/Side Button on iOS Device

Just in case, you wish to use this feature regularly; you should take advantage of Accessibility Shortcut to instantly turn it ON/OFF.

Step 1. Open Settings app → General → Accessibility.

Step 2. Now, scroll down and tap on Accessibility Shortcut.

Step 3. Finally, select Smart Invert Colors and quit the Settings.


Going forward, you can activate or disable Dark Mode just by clicking the side or Home button three times in quick succession on your device anywhere in the app.

Note: If you have assigned the triple click option to activate Emergency SOS on your iPhone X series, this life-saving feature now won’t be activated with a triple-click. Instead, you will have to press and hold the side button and either volume button to use Emergency SOS.
