  • I absolutely love dark mode. I'm visually impaired and with my eye condition it's way easier for me to see things in dark mode. For me, the more apps I can use in dark mode the less eye strain I have, which translates to less migraines. So yeah, I'm so happy that dark mode is becoming more common.

  • It only matters if your screen is OLED. Sadly, most of you guys use iPhone 8 or 11, they both have a 720P LCD screen....
