Dark Mode on iOS 13 is 🔥. Period— Shrey Keny 🏳️ (@ShreyKeny) September 19, 2019
As you can see, Dark Mode is a huge hit — and there are plenty of other reviews just like those praising the change. Switching to Dark Mode really does make iOS feel completely different, particularly in apps like Messages, Calendar, and Apple Maps. Even Apple's Mail app looks great in black.
