Twitter for iOS gets OLED-friendly dark mode

Sagar, 29 March 2019

Twitter rolled out Night Mode for Android and iOS in 2016. Today, the company has rolled out an OLED-friendly dark mode for the latter.

Twitter has announced a new feature called "Lights out" which brings a proper dark mode to its iOS app. Turning it on changes the app's UI to pitch black instead of dark blue. This does a better job at conserving battery on your device if it's equipped with an OLED display.

To turn on this new dark mode, head over to the Settings and privacy > Display and sound menu and tap on the toggle button next to 'Dark mode'. Doing so will give you two options - 'Dim' and 'Lights out'. Select the latter to get a black background. The old Night Mode is now called "Dim".

There's no word on when this feature will make it to Android.
