Facebook has publicly begun to test Dark Mode support on iOS. This comes 5 months after Facebook confirmed its plans to roll out Dark Mode support for iOS, and over a year after Dark Mode came to the iPhone with iOS 13
Facebook already offers a dark mode option for the desktop version of its social network, and several of the company’s other mobile apps — including WhatsApp and Messenger — also already have dark mode. In addition to appealing to people who enjoy a darker background, dark mode is often credited with helping save battery life and reducing eye strain when people use devices in a dim environment.
Now, Facebook has confirmed in collaboration with Jane Manchun Wong that it is now publicly testing Dark Mode support on iPhone. This doesn’t necessarily mean the feature is available to everyone, but it does signal that it’s coming to a wider percentage of the user base now.
How to enable dark mode on Facebook
To turn on dark mode for Facebook on Android and iOS, Make sure you have the latest version of the Facebook app from the App Store, open the app on your phone. Go to the More menu in the top navigation and scroll down to Settings & Privacy. Open that section.
If you’re part of the test, Dark Mode will be listed there. Click on Dark Mode, and then you’ll have the option to select On, Off, or System, which will adjust dark mode based on your phone’s system settings.
Again, Facebook has not yet rolled out Dark Mode support on iOS to everyone, but it is publicly testing the feature with a wider percentage of the Facebook user base. Hopefully, a full rollout will commence sooner rather than later.
