This Is Our First Peek at the iOS 13 Dark Mode

Apple is taking the wraps off the next major version of iOS next week. And ahead of the announcement, we have some new details about iOS 13. The folks at 9to5Mac got their hands on some screenshots from iOS 13, giving us a peek at one of the biggest features in the update.

Dark mode.

We have known for a while iOS 13 will introduce a native dark mode for the entire OS, as well as the built-in apps. And now, we are getting out first look at the dark mode of iOS 13, which gives a darker background to the dock. Apple will also likely include new wallpapers that work better with dark mode. The stock apps on iOS 13 will get a full black background which should also look particularly good on OLED devices. The leaked screenshots don’t really show much apart from the dark dock and Apple Music in the new dark theme, though. I am particularly excited to see how the entire OS will look with this new dark theme.

9to5Mac is also giving us our first look at the redesigned Reminders app on iOS 13, which introduces an improved look on iPads. The redesigned Reminders app has separate sections for reminders for Today, Scheduled reminders, Flagged reminders, and all reminders. There’s also a sidebar of lists that you can create.

iOS 13 is expected to be a major update for the OS with other new features like improved multitasking, new gestures, a redesigned Health app, and more. Apple will unveil iOS 13 and new versions of its other OS at WWDC next week.
