Finally, after a long waiting period, WhatsApp has enabled Dark Mode with its latest update for iOS. The feature was in beta for a few weeks but now has been made available to the public. Dark Mode is a highly requested feature because it helps reduce eye strain in dimly lit environments, and it can slight curb battery power consumption especially on phones with OLED screens, like the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.
If you want to flip the switch on Dark Mode for WhatsApp, here's what you have to do!
How to turn on Dark Mode in WhatsApp on iPhone and iPad
The WhatsApp Dark Mode is tied to the iOS system settings, meaning Whatsapp will automatically change to Dark Mode when you Dark Mode is activated across your entire phone.
- Open Control Center on your iPhone or iPad. Swipe down from the top-right corner on iPhone X or newer and iPad, or swipe up from the bottom of the screen on iPhone 8 and older.
- Press and hold or press firmly on the screen brightness slider.
Tap Dark Mode to toggle the feature on and off.
That's all there is to it! Now as long as Dark Mode is on in iOS, WhatsApp will also be in the dark.
How to use Dark Mode in iOS
If you want to explore Dark Mode even more, by adding a shorter way to toggle it on and off, or by even setting a schedule so Dark Mode automatically turns on at a certain time, you can do that as well!
