Yes! The dark mode is finally coming to iPhones with the iOS 13 update. And it looks gorgeous. iPhone users for years now have been asking Apple to introduced dark mode to the iPhones. It took them 2 years to finally bring the dark mode to iPhone users. Apple has done a great job implementing the dark mode to iOS. You can either enable the dark mode manually or schedule it to be enabled with sunset and disabled again with the sunrise.
The dark mode is available system-wide. Apple also showcased a few apps that support dark mode, and all of them looks stunning. Apple is also letting third-party app developers implement the dark mode to their apps. That means you can expect to see more and more apps switching to dark mode shortly.
