New Dark Mode can improve your iPhone’s battery life by up to 30 percent

According to the YouTube channel PhoneBoof, who conducted their own experiments, setting up your phone through Apple’s new Dark Mode can help conserve its valuable energy.

Dark Mode is a new feature of Apple’s latest software update – iOS 13. It uses a darker color palette than the lighter mode – the color scheme used for iPhone users – that brings the front end content to the fore. For example, if you go to Instagram while in Dark Mode, the background turns black, allowing text and images to really pop. According to Apple, the new color scheme “gives a great viewing experience, especially in low-light environments.”

You can turn on Dark Mode at specific times or at sunset. Tap the automatic option below the light / dark options. You can either select “Sunset to Sunrise” or set your own schedule by tapping on a custom schedule. To test it, simply go to the Settings app on your iPhone and click Display and Brightness. Then, tap “Dark” to start the dark mode. If you do not like the change, click on the “Light” option to return to the light color scheme. To test it, simply go to the Settings app on your iPhone and click Display and Brightness. Then, tap “Dark” to start the dark mode.

So how will the settings affect your phone's stored battery? Phonebuff took it upon them to find it. They have charged two iPhones up to 100 percent battery and confirmed that their displays are set at the same brightness level. They then employed two small robotic weapons to tap the screen to text two human fingers until the death of the first phone.

Dark mode dropped to “a healthier” 88 percent, while light mode reduced the iPhone’s battery to 83 percent two hours later. There was already a difference in how the batteries were being run down. After that, the robot spent two hours pretending to be human by scrolling through Twitter aimlessly. After this period, the dark mode phone has reached 72 percent battery, while the light mode phone juice has dropped to 57 percent. The robots then spent another two hours watching YouTube videos. The Dark Mode iPhone had 43 percent of its life left even after two hours of battery life, while the Light Mode phone had only 20 percent.

Eventually, the robots started using the maps with the initial intention of doing it for two hours, because they were obviously very lost. After 1 hour 33 minutes the light mode phone gave up its last breath and died. At the same time, the Dark Mode phone still had a 30 percent battery left. However, to set up Dark Mode you need to mention a few things to phone off before you run. First, they only use apps that have Dark Mode enabled in them, so you probably won’t see such extreme results when using a wide range of apps and websites because you won’t use Dark Mode. What’s more, the brightness of your iPhone will also be affected – phoneBufff uses 200 needs, which is a standard level of light. However, if you use very little electricity, it seems that using Dark Mode will help your iPhone to stay a little longer than it would otherwise.
