Dark modes continue to arrive in mobile territory slowly but surely, and one of the giants of social networking is about to take another step. We’re talking about Facebook, which already has dark mode in most of its applications but has not yet fully implemented it in its main app, the Facebook that bears his name.
Now, a few screen shots show us that the dark mode for Facebook in iOS is just around the corner. A mode that reverses the color of the texts to white on gray. Because yes, unfortunately it doesn’t look like it’s going to be a pure dark mode like the one that does help reduce the charge on the battery.
Dark grey almost black, but not
As we said, it seems that on Facebook they have opted for a dark grey mode instead of a pure black option, so this arrival will have no effect on energy consumption with OLED screens. iOS-enabled devices can enjoy a less eyestraining navigation mode with less light output, and can be turned on or off at will from the app settings.
The dark mode you can also program to automatically turn it on and off at set times, or directly instruct it to follow the system pattern. If we put iOS in dark mode, Facebook will follow the same path and apply the color change. We don’t yet know when this dark mode will be released for the Facebook app in iOS, which applies to both the iPhone and iPad apps.
It seems that this dark mode is already being tested through a closed beta user group so it may be a matter of a short time before it is officially released to other users of the platform on Apple devices. We’ll see how long it takes for this dark mode of Facebook to be available to everyone. In the meantime, we’ll settle for these screenshots so we know what’s coming.
