How To: Make Android 10's Dark Mode Turn on Automatically at Night — No Root Needed

Android 10's new dark mode is a pleasure to behold for longtime users. Ever since OLED panels became widespread, we've been clamoring for the feature. But now that we have it, there's a new problem: it doesn't turn on automatically based on time of day. Thankfully, a simple app can turn dark mode into a true night mode.

How To: Enable Dark Mode in Google Maps on iPhone & Android

Dark mode is one of the most requested features these days, but it's even more important with a navigation app. If you're using Google Maps for directions while driving at night, the default white background will shock your eyes and make it harder to see the road in front of you. Thankfully, you can now enable a dark theme to make this whole process a lot safer.

How To: Unlock Apple's 'Dark Mode' in iOS 11, 12 & 13 for iPhone

Apple gave us the ability to invert colors on the screen a very long time ago. Then they gave us grayscale mode in iOS 8, Night Shift in iOS 9, and the red screen filter in iOS 10. While the long-awaited "Dark Mode" finally appeared in iOS 13, iOS 11 and iOS 12 both have a decent placeholder for it you can use on your iPhone.

How To: Enable Dark Mode on Your OnePlus with Android 10

OnePlus often introduces unique features that receive praise from the smartphone community. But they can sometimes change things up and confuse their users as well.

How To: Make Android 10's Dark Mode Turn on Automatically at Sunset

It's nice having a dark theme on Android 10 and One UI 2, but setting it on a schedule takes it a step further.

It sounds pretty simple, but it's one of those things you wouldn't know you need until you try it.

How To: Enable Dark Mode in Telegram for More Comfortable Late-Night Messaging

Whether gabbing via cloud chat or Secret Chat, there's no denying that private messaging is one of Telegram's strengths. Communications can often occur at night, where Telegram's default bright white theme can be a bit uncomfortable to use, but Telegram supports dark mode on Android and iOS — with a few different themes to match any late-night chatting style.

How To: Schedule Night Mode to Kick in Automatically on Your Galaxy

Samsung may have beaten Apple to the punch in introducing a system-wide dark theme with One UI, but they left out the ability to schedule night mode to kick in automatically. It's nothing that a little update can't fix, however, and that's exactly what Samsung just did to remedy this issue.

How To: Force Dark Mode for News Stories in Apple News

It's almost impossible to use Apple News at night without having to mess with the white point and zoom filters. That might sound a bit dramatic, but it's really not when you consider that iOS 13 has a perfectly good Dark Mode that should work for News. So why are we stuck reading most news stories in Light Mode? We're not, but you have to put a little work into it going dark in News.
