At the beginning of this year, Facebook has finally rolled out the much-awaited dark mode on its Android application. And now, it looks like the company is working on a dark mode for its flagship iOS app.
According to a report from WABetaInfo, they found the hidden string in the beta version of the Facebook app for iOS that indicates the availability of dark mode. The best thing is that they managed to enable the hidden setting in the Facebook beta app for iOS. Since they managed to enable the hidden dark mode, they shared some screenshots of how the dark mode will look in the Facebook app on iOS.
Looking at the shared screenshots, it suggests that Facebook is aiming for a theme that’s closer to greyscale than the true blacks used in Apple’s dark mode for iOS 13. This means Facebook will be revamping its iOS app with a similar dark mode as on its Android app. Well, it’s still a mystery that why Facebook is preferring a greyscale theme, as this negates the potential energy-saving benefits of its dark mode for OLED iPhones.
Still, when we are talking about dark modes, they make it easier on the eyes when viewed in dark environments. WABetaInfo also mentioned that on the final release of this feature, the dark mode on Facebook app on iOS can be manually triggered to on/off or set to adjust based on the device’s system settings.
Some UI elements still need working on to make the interface look consistent in dark mode. Since the dark mode is still in its development phase, these cannot be called the final outcomes as the design could change again before the final rollout. Also, there is no word from the company on when the dark mode will be finally rolled out on the stable version of the app.
