Listen to the Podcast:
Instagram isn’t precisely an application that respects Apple’s design guidelines (we’ve spent years without an interface for iPadOS, and frankly, it’s already embarrassing enough). Still, at least some of the iOS settings are respected in design. One of those settings is the dark mode, which we can also reflect on Instagram without difficulties. Let’s see how to activate Instagram dark mode on iPhone.
Instagram Dark Mode iPhone: Through iOS Settings
The only way to put Instagram in dark mode on the iPhone is to put all iOS in that mode. Instagram always mimics the look of the rest of the system by default, so if iOS is dark, Instagram will be too.
The ‘Automatic’ option allows you to activate this dark mode depending on the time, prioritizing the light mode during the day or the dark way at night. You can schedule dark mode activation for when the sun goes down or at a manually set time.
