And just as any other OLED display phone out there, the iPhone X is theoretically going to use less power when displaying dark images or content, as the pixels are simply turned off to display black, unlike LCDs, where the always-on backlight seeps through. Now, if only the iPhone X had a dark theme to make use of that OLED display characteristic… Well, it sort of has one, the Smart Invert accessibility feature that is available on most phones – and on most it looks terrible, but Apple simply reverses the bright coloring of the predominantly light interface with darker shades, without touching images, media, or already dark-themed apps.
It is as close to a systemwide Dark Mode as you can possibly get on the X, unless you render an imaginary dark interface regime with the dedication of a graphics artist. That’s exactly what Maximos Angelakis has done, and, as you can see in the slideshow above, the result is breathtaking, at least to our eyes. What do you think, do you like it, and would you appreciate if Apple introduces such a Dark Mode for its iPhones by default, or at least for the ones with OLED displays? Our eyes will certainly be thankful when awoken at night by a notification or two.
