    Default Dark mode on messages

    Does this actually exist yet for iOS?

    I think you may have read the thread about dark mode in the native Twitter app

    That's what I saw! It's hidden somewhere in the os. Just not sure if apple will bring it out. I do like the dark mode in twitter. I bet more dark modes would save battery life

    Not true. iOS devices don't use amoled displays so dark mode won't affect the battery.

    In addition, I believe it'll come out in a future update, not iOS 10 (maybe iOS 11). Since none of the betas have this feature

    It's in there somewhere. But will Apple implement it? They may save it for next year. Who knows?

    It says iOS 10 on top. Maybe Developer and hidden until GM?

    See, I don't know about this, this looks like a render on an iOS emulator. That's definitely a Mac window.

    I hope they don't implement this. Looks like Android. I also hope they don't go to an amoled display either because the battery life with them is horrible. (Yes I switched from Android and have never been happier).

    That doesn't mean anything. It was found in the bowels of the code. If it was fudged, we'd know. Too many people smarter than me scrutinizing this. He was right about the clock app.

    I think you mean Windows, and what's wrong with having choices?

    Nah! I'll pass, doesn't look nice to me. I feel like the more "customization's" are rumored the more people are like "yea, that's be awesome" but Apple is about simplicity, i hope they aren't taking the road towards an Android look. What's next? A whole list of fonts for you to choose from? Nah, i like simple, simple is better.

    I would imagine you'd have the option to not use it. Nothing wrong with options.

    Well technically you can have a dark theme mode for iMessage if you invert the colors... but I'm gonna deem this questionable because the SS wasn't taken on the iOS device.... not with a Mac window clearly in the background and when you send a new message it says "New iMessage" on the top... not the device model and software version.

    Yes, that is a capture from the XCode8 development IDE simulator.

    My 6s Plus running iOS 10.0.1 does have dark backgrounds in all of the time related screens. - Clock, alarm, bedtime, stopwatch, and timer.
