macOS Finally Gets a Proper Dark Mode

An optional dark theme is finally making its way to macOS later this year, as part of macOS 10.14 Mojave.

The new look changes all the windows and menu bars to a dark gray and black theme that makes it easier on the eyes at night time, and will help anyone who needs to work with images regularly.

Dark mode themes have taken the world by storm lately, and pretty much every app and operating system worth its salt has included it, except for macOS, until today.

When enabled, every app and window that normally shows a light gray or white background will instead show a much darker shade of gray, with some black touches thrown in. It’s not only helpful for when you’re working or doodling around at night on your Mac, but it actually makes for a great distraction-free setting as well.

Dark Mode will be included in macOS Mojave, which will release later this year.
