. . . And now your Mac with can have its system-wide dark mode.
Learn how to turn on dark mode and what your Mac's interface does and does not do.
Mojave Dark Mode
Apple has introduced some sort ofbut only the menu bar and dock have gone dark. Mojave does the dark mode right. For most Apple apps, the background is black and white. Especially the photos app and iTunes look good in dark mode – the colors of your photos and album art really pop against the black background.
The influence of dark mode is less noticeable in Safari. In the Apple browser, the title bar at the top turns black, but web pages are displayed in the same way as in the normal, bright mode. All of this whiteness and brightness can fluctuate against the dark elements of dark mode.
Since Mojave is still in beta, third-party apps still need to take over the user interface in dark mode, but many should officially release Mojave in the fall. Chrome's translucent titlebar, however, appears darker against a dark background. Apple's iWork apps – Pages, Numbers, Keynote, etc. – are also on the edge of Dark mode right now, but should come into play this fall.
Dark Too Bright
I did not find a shortcut to toggle between light and dark modes, but it's not too difficult to find in System Preferences. Just go to System Preferences> General and you'll see the Light and Dark options above for Appearance .
Dark Mode with Dynamic Desktop
With Mojave, Apple has introduced a dynamic wallpaper that changes its lighting slowly throughout the day, starting with a bright, sunny desert scene during the day and turning into a cool, dark screen at night. It can be found at System Preferences> Desktop & Screensaver .
If you have selected the dynamic background image, changing the background image from the daylight scene to the night scene will activate the dark mode (and vice versa). Without the dynamic background image selected, your wallpaper will remain the same when you step in and out of dark mode, which reduces its impact.
