iOS 13 Leak Shows Off New Dark Mode Feature on iPhone

Ahead of the debut of WWDC next week, a key feature of iOS 13 has apparently leaked, courtesy of 9to5Mac.

“Today, we have screenshots from iOS 13, shared exclusively with 9to5Mac, that show some of its new features,” writes Guilherme Rambo.

An anonymous source sent screenshots of Dark Mode, which can be turned on within Settings or a toggle in Control Center.

“On the Home screen, the only noticeable change is the Dock, which adopts a vibrant dark background instead of the light one. It’s possible that Apple will be including new wallpapers that work better in Dark Mode with the new OS,” says Rambo.

Below is a screenshot of Apple Music with Dark Mode enabled, plus also a revamped screenshot interface in iOS 13, which will be the same on iPad, showing a blurred wallpaper background from your iPhone, instead of a grey background:

Rambo also shares an image of the new icon for the upcoming unified app bringing Find My iPhone and Find My Friends together, to be called just “Find My”:


The image of the Music app in Dark Mode looks to be a “true black background”, which may bring battery life benefits for iPhone users with OLED displays (iPhone X/XS/XS Max), since the latter does not require energy to power black pixel.

Apple kicks off its WWDC keynote on June 3, 2019, and it is expected to stream live again.
