Apple Mac Dark Mode

Apple on Monday announced a bevy of new updates and features for its range of devices, including the iPhone, Apple Watch, Mac and more, as part of WWDC 2018.

Among them: A new “dark mode” for macOS, the operating system powering iMac desktops and MacBook laptops. Dark mode, included with the upcoming macOS Mojave update, activates a darker user interface for your Mac. Windows, menu systems, and even the default desktop wallpaper will all change to a dark theme when dark mode is activated.

MacOS Mojave’s Dark Mode may be particularly useful at night, when the brightness and lightness of macOS’ default theme can be overwhelming. However, it’s not the desktop equivalent of the iPhone’s “Night Shift” mode. For that, try f.lux, a third-party app that can change the white balance of your display to a more soothing setting as the sun sets. (Apple also introduced its own Night Shift on the Mac last year; here’s how to use it.)


MacOS Mojave should be available later this year.
