Switching between the Light and Dark modes on iPhones should be easy. You can toggle between the modes simply by opening Settings > Display & Brightness and in the Appearance section and tapping on either the default Light or on Dark. But you can encounter a problem when you try to switch back to Light mode from Dark mode, when iPhone won’t let you switch to Light mode. Selecting the Light option in the phone’s Settings (or via the Light / Dark switch in iPhone’s Control Center) doesn’t do anything in that case. And, there’s no any kind of warning to let you know what’s the problem.
Chrome is my iPhone and PC web browser of choice. For some time, I was looking for a solution to automatically sync bookmarks of Safari and Chrome web-browsers on my iPhone. Unsuccessfully. When using iPhone’s default Safari iOS app, I had had to manually send web pages (I wanted to keep and open later in Chrome) to Chrome bookmarks using the Safari’s share option.
In order to turn automatic display brightness changing off, novice iPhone users usually go to the Display & Brightness section of iPhone’s Settings. However, the auto brightness switch isn’t there. It’s actually in the Accessibility section since iOS 11 version.
Note: If you’re using iOS 13 or later, this “how to” is outdated, because in iOS 13 there’s now the real dark mode option. It’s in Settings > Display & Brightness.
White fonts on black background, also known as “dark mode”, is an accelerating trend in user interface design. An increasing number of apps has started to provide dark mode option alongside the usual “light mode” with black fonts on light backgrounds. Dark mode is believed to be easier on the eyes. It also saves battery life on devices with OLED displays, such as some of the newer iPhone models (X, XS, and XS Max).
iPhone’s operating system iOS does support haptic feedback. In iPhone, this technology uses slight vibrations under your finger when performing some actions on the screen to give you a feedback that that action happened. For instance, when switching a toggle button in Settings, a vibration under your finger means you have toggled the button.
