More than a year after Apple added Dark Mode support to iOS, Facebook has finally rolled out dark mode support for its iPhone app.
When it came to adding a Dark Mode option to its iOS app, The social network announced it was coming in June 2020, but dragged its feet for months before eventually rolling it out to mobile users in November the same year, over 400 days after Apple first introduced the feature in iOS 13.
Dark Mode has been available on the social network’s website for a while now, and some of Facebook’s other apps, including Messenger and Instagram, have long featured Dark Mode, so it’s unclear why the company’s flagship app took longer to gain the feature. If you’ve only just learned that the Facebook app has a Dark Mode and you’d like to give it a go, follow these steps.
Step 1: Open the Facebook app on your iPhone.
Step 2: Tap on the menu button at the bottom right corner.
Step 3: Scroll down to Settings & Privacy.
Step 4: Select Dark mode.
Step 5: Tap On to enable Dark Mode.
From the following menu, you can either enable or disable dark mode for Facebook in iPhone. If you choose System then the app will adjust the appearance based on your device’s system settings. Meaning, if you are using a light theme on your iPhone then Facebook will also use its light theme. And if you switch to iOS dark mode then Facebook will adopt a dark avatar.
If you don’t see the dark mode option in the Facebook Settings menu then open the App Store on the iPhone and download the latest update of the app.
