‘LEAKED’ images of the Dark Mode that should be coming to iPhones with the iOS 13 update have appeared online.
The supposed evidence of the update comes in the form of screenshots, which show a black theme where we once saw all white.

The screenshots, which appeared on 9to5Mac, show what Apple Music would look like in Dark Mode and how the home screen would become a smokey grey colour.
Dark Mode is so sought after because it has the potential to save battery life on OLED-equipped iPhone screens like the iPhone XS Max.
This is because phones with these screens can essentially turn pixels off when the background needs to be black.
Dark Mode is also said to be easier on the eyes, especially at night and could be turned on by simply tapping a button in the Control Centre.
The beta version of iOS 13 is thought to be coming to iPhones for registered iPhone developers next week and then will be ready for the public who want to try the beta version in late June.
The official iOS 13 update should be available for everyone in September and it is likely to launch alongside the new 2019 iPhones.
As well as Dark Mode, the update is also said to be improving the Reminders app and combining Find My iPhone with Find My Friends to create one ‘Find My’ app.
The iOS 13 Reminders app has been shown in another leaked screenshot as having the four sections: Today, Scheduled, Flagged and All, which can all be colour coded.
iPhone tricks to try today
Here are some of the best…
- Typing cursor – When typing, hold down the space bar to turn your keyboard into a trackpad, letting you move around words and sentences more easily
- Close all Safari tabs – To do this in one go, simply hold the overlapped squares in the bottom right-hand corner, and press close all tabs
- Delete lots of photos quickly – Hold down on a photo and then drag your finger diagonally in Photos to select lots of images at once, then hit delete
- Convert currency quickly – Swipe down from the top of your Home screen (or swipe left to right on an iPhone X), then tap in the bar and type a currency (like $200) and it will automatically covert to your local currency
- Check if you’re due a battery upgrade – Batteries inside smartphones degrade over time. Just go to Settings > Battery > Battery Health, and check out the Maximum Capacity reading. Generally a battery is considered worn when you’re down to 80% capacity. If you’re below, you can buy a battery swap from Apple
- Move apps around faster – Hold an app until it starts wiggling, then (while still holding) tap other apps, causing them to stack so you can move them around easier
