There is no shortage of iOS users wanting a Dark / Night Mode in the system, references to this mode have already been discovered in iOS 10, but, so far, everything we have is a Smart Color Inverse mode (within Accessibility), which comes close but is still not really official.
We even divulge concepts in this desired way here in . And the truth is that, now, with the arrival of the iPhone X (and its OLED screen), this option makes even more sense taking into account even a possible impact on the device's battery since, as we know, black pixels on OLED screens they just don't care.
And that is exactly what Maximos Angelakis, an industrial design student at the University of Northumbria, did: he imagined what iOS would look like fully adapted to Dark Mode on the iPhone X.
This concept imagines an iOS version designed for the beautiful OLED screen of the iPhone X. Inspired by watchOS, which takes advantage of the OLED screen of the Watch. Having a “dark mode” in the system also means maximizing the phone's battery life.
I hope you enjoy!
Then, the creation of the Greek designer:
Here we see a screen that is always on / active, including a notification indicator at the top left.
The Control Center (lower than the current one) and the way to switch between apps (inspired by watchOS 4) was also slightly rethought by Angelakis.
The contact page was also slightly redesigned, making the information more tidy. Below, more about Angelakis' vision for iOS and this blessed Dark Mode that never arrives!
Did you like it? Ta something that could easily arrive in an iOS 11.3 of life, n Apple? 😉
