Siri and dark mode.

Siri and dark mode


Siri might have spilled the beans regarding Apple’s possibly newest feature coming to iOS 10. Dark mode is a feature many iPhone users have been wanting since long ago. Essentially Dark Mode converts all of the white into black, in turn saving a bit of battery and eye strain. When a user commands Siri to enable “dark mode” on an iOS device Siri replies with, “Sorry, but I’m not able to change that setting,” an unexpected result considering the operating system contains no reference to such features. Siri normally falls back on a generic “I don’t understand” answer when asked to modify an unsupported function. Further, if Siri is unable to customize an existing user option, like powering down an iPhone, she will inform a user of the limitation and apologize.


Apple’s iOS does not currently support dark mode, the closest facsimile being Night Shift in iOS 9. Mac users, however, can access a special system setting that changes the menu bar and application dock from light gray to black. The option for “dark” graphics debuted with OS X 10.10 Yosemite in 2014.
