Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) might finally include the highly anticipated dark mode in the next version of its mobile operating system, iOS 10.
The Dark Mode is a dark theme that Apple has been rumored to be working on, and those rumors might finally prove true soon. Developers have reported that there is a Dark Mode in the first beta of iOS 10. The new finding renews hope for iOS fans that have been eagerly waiting for the company to release details about the mode. However, there was no mention of the dark theme during Apple’s recent Worldwide Developer Conference that was held a few days ago. Nevertheless, the report from developers might be a hint that the theme might be included in the next version of the iOS.
The dark mode in the beta version of iOS 10 is not yet completed, but so far it has been established that it will be supported by various apps including iTunes, alarm, Safari and iBooks. The dark theme was present in Apple TV during the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, and it suits the home theater environment. The software and tech company had previously tested the theme in OS X Yosemite and the iBooks app on iOS 9.
Apple is expected to launch iOS 10 in the fall, and it will include a ton of new features for Apple fans to look forward to. The company might be planning to employ the same approach that it used to launch the Night Shift mode in iOS 9.3 for the launch of the dark mode. This means it will be polished and ready by the time the company launches the new operating system.
The theme is exciting for iPhone users because the dark theme deviates from the plain and regular look of the stock iOS, making it more appealing to some users.
