Dark Mode iPhones can have up to 30% longer battery life than Light Mode

By this time, many users who installed the iOS 13 on their devices have already decided whether they love or not the notorious Dark Mode (Dark mode). In addition to the advantages of visualization (such as reducing the emission of blue light that is harmful to the eyes) and the experience itself, this kind of appearance also contributes to something extremely important: the battery life.

To prove it, the channel PhoneBuff put the iPhone on another test, now to compare battery life with Dark Mode on one device and off on another. The result? The battery of iPhones with that kind of look have a 30% greater autonomy than those in Clear Mode, as you can see on the video.

It is worth mentioning that the test was performed with the iPhone XS Max, which equipped with an OLED display. Therefore, the results do not necessarily apply to all handsets that support the new look, as the display material also interferes with battery life since Dark Mode does not “turn off” pixels on LCD screens, as happens with diode displays.

Also important to understand that for the test both iPhones were calibrated to the same brightness intensity (200 nits) two samples with brightness at 100 and 300 nitsrespectively, also followed the same pattern. Also, some apps (or even versions of Android Dark Mode) do not use truly dark themes, but rather light-emitting blue tones (not as bright as Light Mode), which can interfere with tests like this.

Although the comparison was quite interesting, it doesn't mean anything to owners of iPhones XR, 11 and other models with LCD screens. As we said, besides a more pleasing appearance, Dark Mode on devices with liquid crystal displays offers no efficiency (especially on battery power) as seen on devices with an OLED display.
