Apple is reportedly planning to introduce a new dark mode in its next iOS 13 update for iPhones and iPads, according to a Bloomberg report.
The new dark mode, which is set to be introduced this summer at Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference, will make it easier for iPhone or iPad users to see at night-time.
Several different apps have added dark modes over the years, but many iPhone owners have been calling on Apple to add the feature on its own iOS devices.
The news comes after Apple added the dark mode feature to macOS with its Mojave software in September of last year.
Improvement to the CarPlay interface is expected, alongside a new iPad home screen. News about a redesigned home screen began circulating early last year, but Apple delayed introducing it with the iOS 12 update to focus on stability, instead.
In addition to the new dark mode and home screen design for iPads, the iOS 13 update is said to include a tab interface for apps and improvements to file management.
Previous rumours have also suggested that Apple’s iOS 13 could include an enhanced multitasking feature, which allows users to run two iPad apps in a single window.
Apple will also introduce two new services into iOS 13, including a magazine subscription service and a video streaming platform.
