How to Enable ‘Dark Mode’ (Smart Invert) in iOS 11 [VIDEO]

With the release of iOS 11 beta, developers continue to pour through the release. One feature is called Smart Invert, which “reverses the colors of the display, except for images, media and some apps that use dark color styles.”

What does this mean? Smart Invert acts as an unofficial ‘dark mode’ for iOS 11, allowing those who use their iPhones and iPads in bed to have an easier experience on their eyes, as white space turns dark. While Night Shift changes colour temperature, Smart Invert will ramp things up another notch.

How to enable Smart Invert in iOS 11

Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Display Accommodations > Invert Colors > Smart Invert.

Apple says “enabling Invert Colors will automatically disable Night Shift.”
