Dark Mode = OFF

Turned off auto­mat­ic dark mode on my iPhone after see­ing the fol­low­ing tweet. Dark mode did­n’t feel right and I think that’s for the rea­sons explained in the blog post with­in the tweet.

I pre­fer Night Shift instead.

Actu­al­ly, the best way to dark mode is to keep the device screen off after a cer­tain time in the evening!

  1. Inter­est­ing. I’d be curi­ous for a real-world study/survey into it (peo­ple using dark mode on their phone/computers vs. their pro­duc­tiv­i­ty) instead of bas­ing things on tra­di­tion­al con­text, and while I agree that in most bright envi­ron­ments, dark mode can feel strain­ing on the eye, I still pre­fer dark mode. I keep my envi­ron­ment as dim as pos­si­ble. I don’t like bright light (includ­ing the sun, haha) and so a ful­ly-bright back­ground, even on low bright­ness, hurts my eyes (not lit­er­al­ly, but you get the point!).

      Yep, I got you. Dark mode is just not for me.
