Twitter has announced the release of a new darker dark mode for iOS. The previous Night mode has been renamed 'Dim' and a new 'Lights Out' dark mode has been introduced.

"You wanted dark mode to be darker, so we tested a variety of color palettes for “lights out.” We went with pure black because it emits no light, turns off unused pixels and still makes the readability of content on Twitter easier on the eyes, especially in dim environments."

Twitter has also brought Automatic Dark Mode to iOS. Here's a look at the three modes announced today...

● Dim: Dim is the current Dark Mode theme that we introduced in 2016 – a blue/grey color that still gives people a more comfortable way to enjoy Twitter for any environment you're in and helps reduce eye strain in low lit environments.

● Lights Out: Our new theme for Dark Mode, which is a pure black color palette that emits no light since the pixels are turned off. This is a great option for those who want an even darker theme for low lit environments that reduces eye strain, and can potentially help with saving battery.

● Automatic Dark Mode: Now, Twitter for iOS devices can enable automatic dark mode to switch from light to the dark mode theme of their choice according to their timezone. This feature takes the burden off of people to make the adjustments. If you're using Twitter all day long, it's better on the eyes to have a tool that adjusts for the varying environments, contexts, and atmospheres you'll experience throughout the day.

To access dark mode quickly, you can swipe right and hold down the light bulb icon at the bottom to adjust your themes and turn on/off automatic dark mode.

You can download Twitter from the App Store for free.
