“Dark Mode is here! No, not for iOS, but for macOS Mojave, Apple’s next-generation operating system for the Mac. It’s not just a coat of night-colored paint, though: Apple’s implementation goes deep,” Rene Ritchie writes for iMore. “That includes sampling the background colors to make sure the temperature is never so warm or so cold it clashes with the rest of your desktop, and some bright new accent colors that stand out like neon.”

“Mostly, though, it just looks cool. Sure, we act like it’s all the nerdy, niche features that we love the most. But announce Dark Mode and we cheer like it’s the second coming of emoji,” Ritchie writes. “Because we’re human and we want to have fun and look good doing it. And that’s what Dark Mode is really all about.”

“The goal of the new Dark Mode interface appearance is to let the cruft fade away and the content pop. Like, POP,” Ritchie writes. “Previously, this was the realm of pro apps and exclusive to creative pros. But, just as the definition of pro has widened over the years, so has the understanding of the value a proper Dark Mode brings.”

Dark Mode transforms the Mac desktop with a dramatic darkened color scheme where content pops and controls recede into the background.
