One of the most talked about features introduced in iOS 13 is system-wide Dark Mode. The inverted color scheme is no longer relegated to only third-party apps. It has been integrated throughout iOS including most stock apps, settings and system-level views. You can choose when to give your eyes a rest by manually enabling Dark Mode or schedule it like Night Shift to switch over at night. You can also create your own schedule and choose how dark you want your device to become.

Dark (or night) mode has become a must have feature for apps and devices over the past year or so. It is basically a display theme that is easier on the eyes in low light settings. A typical dark mode has some variation of a darker background with lighter text as opposed to the normal white background/black text, making it much more comfortable to read your phone in the dark.

While Apple has yet to offer an official "Dark Mode" setting for low light environments, iOS 11 does offer "Smart Invert Colors" in the Accessibility settings, which basically turns white backgrounds to black and black text to white (and vice-versa) and dims bright colors. This makes viewing in low light situations easier on the eyes and less distracting to others around you. Unfortunately it is not very easy to get to in a hurry because it is buried in Settings -> General -> Accessibility -> Display Accommodations -> Invert Colors -> Smart Invert.
