In the iOS 11 update, Apple added the Smart Inverse feature, which can be called dark mode for iPhone, iPad and iPod.
Smart inversion makes light interface elementsdark. It changes the background, buttons and text, but does not touch the images, icons, etc. The function is not perfect, but it is at least some solution. A more advanced dark mode would be great for an iPhone X with an OLED display.
Fortunately, if you have a jailbreak installed, youYou can use the Eclipse tweak, which perfectly replaces the dark mode. Guillermo Moran, creator of tweaks, released a preview of Eclipse X - an updated tweak for iPhone X. You can already download it for free from this site. In the future, the developer has promised to release a paid version when the work on the tweak is completed.
To install a tweak, you must have an Electra jailbreak installed.
Before installing tweak, you should know the following nuances:
- It is active in all applications, and it can not be turned off.
- Color options are limited as this is only a preview.
- Mail and Notes are not supported yet. Will be fixed in the update.
- In the future, will support more third-party applications.
Users who have already installed a tweak noticed that it significantly reduced battery consumption. This can be seen in the screenshot below.
If you have not installed a jailbreak on youriPhone X, read our instructions on how to install the Electra jailbreak for iOS 11 - iOS 11.1.2. You can also read about how to install tweaks on devices with iOS 11 without Cydia.
Another alternative is to turn on dark mode in all applications in which it is available. These include YouTube, Twitter, etc. We hope that in iOS 12 Apple will finally add a full dark mode.
