Instagram update brings dark mode in iOS 13 (Update: Android 10 too)
The social network has just pushed out another update for its iOS app, which brings the highly-anticipated dark mode. The changelog published in the App Store doesn't mention anything other than bug fixes and performance improvements, but The Verge confirms native dark mode support for iOS 13 is there.
Still, you will not be able to turn the dark mode on or off within the application. Instead, the iPhone's system-wide settings are the ones that dictate Instagram's behavior, so if you choose to use the dark theme on your iPhone, the app will match it with its own.
We're not complaining, but it would have been nice to be able to switch it on and off directly from within the app. All in all, it's great that another popular iOS app is getting important visual improvements like the dark mode.
