Instagram updates iOS app with support for iOS 13’s native Dark Mode UI
Instagram is the latest app to add support for the newly introduced Dark Mode in iOS 13. The redesign features white and gray text on a black background, as well as simple black icons outlined in white. The brightest elements in the new UI are avatars and the content shared by users.
In addition to reducing eye strain, the new Dark Mode support will reduce battery drain on devices that feature OLED displays. Users are not able to manually turn this mode off or on in the app, however; it is tied to the iOS 13 settings, meaning Dark Mode must be enabled on the user's phone. The update is rolling out on Instagram for iOS now.
