How to enable Dark Mode in iOS 17, iPadOS 17

iOS 16 and iPadOS 16 (and some earlier versions) offer a Dark Mode that, in Apple’s words, “delivers a dramatic dark color scheme that looks great across the system and is easier on the eyes in low-light environments.”

To turn on Dark Mode in Settings or Control Center

° Go to Settings, then tap Display & Brightness.

° Select Dark to turn on Dark Mode.

To turn Dark Mode on and off in Control Center:

° Go to Settings, then tap Control Center.

° Tap the Add button next to Dark Mode to add it to Control Center.

To set Dark Mode to turn on automatically:

° Go to Settings, then tap Display & Brightness.

° Select Automatic.

° Tap Options to set a schedule for Dark Mode.
