iOS 10 Concept Presents Dark Mode And Split Screen For iPhone

There were different rumors and suggestions about the next Apple's major software version features and here is another iOS 10 iPhone Dark Mode concept. Dark Mode is the main gist for this concept, which is being hinted at within Apple’s latest update for the official WWDC app, which was launched not too long ago. 

iHelpBR presented few images how a Dark mode setting could look like on iOS devices. The concept sees Dark Mode applied to just about everything, from Apple’s stock apps, the system itself, menus, and shows what apps like Messages, Mail, News, Contacts, and more look like with a Dark Mode applied. What’s more, the Dark Mode could extend to third-party apps, too, if Apple created a Dark Mode API.

The concept also suggests that Dark Mode could be initiated automatically once the sun sets, something that’s actually already present in the stock Apple Maps app.

Another interesting iOS 10 feature that this concept presents for the iPhone lineup is the inclusion of split-screen multitasking and picture-in-picture support. Currently these two features are already presented in the iPad lineup only. There’s no telling if Apple would bring something like this to the smaller-screened iPhone family, but it’s not completely unheard of on some of the competition’s smartphones, so it’s possible that some iPhone owners out there would like to see the feature added.

OS X has had a dark mode since the OS X Yosemite launch back in 2014, with a darker menu bar, dock, and system menus, and since then, it's been a highly desired feature for iOS.

According to recent reports Apple will announce its next major software version at this year’s WWDC, which is set to take place between June 13. So it will be interesting to see if the company rolls out the above described features for iOS devices during this event. Apple will live stream the WWDC 2016 keynote so you can watch it on any iOS device or Mac.
