Enable Dark Mode iPhone | Toggle Light and Dark

In this tutorial, I will show you how to enable dark mode on your iPhone. You can also use this tutorial to toggle between light and dark mode. I prefer to have dark mode set on my phone to save battery life. In my opinion, I also find it easier on the eyes as well.

Enable Dark Mode Steps

To start, you need to find the settings app on your iPhone. It is grey with a gear icon in the middle. You can see this pointed out in the image below. The location of the settings app will vary from phone to phone depending on where you have placed it. You can always search for Settings in the main iPhone search by pulling down on the screen.

From here you will see the APPEARANCE section that you can use to switch between Light and Dark mode. Once you tap on your preferred appearance you will see that option take place immediately.

You can also toggle the Automatic option. This will toggle the light mode on after sunrise, then toggle dark mode after sunset.
