Microsoft Office Apps Are Getting a Dark Mode on iOS

It’s a good time to be a dark mode fan: Instagram just launched a built-in dark mode on both Android and iOS, and Microsoft is now joining the party with support for dark mode on its flagship Office apps.

The company announced last evening it’s introducing a new dark mode for Word, PowerPoint, and Excel on iOS 13. Office apps have had a dark mode on other platforms for a little while now, and so the addition of iOS support will be a welcome upgrade.

Microsoft says the new dark mode is available to Insiders for now, though it will be rolling out to everyone else with version 2.30 next week. “Office gets easier to look at with support for iOS 13’s Dark Mode. Improved accessibility and an updated UI help keep you productive anywhere,” the company said.

You can join the Office Insider program for iOS here to try out the new dark more straight away.
