WhatsApp iPhone iOS dark mode arrives in latest beta release

WhatsApp is About to Introduce a Dark Theme for iPhone in Newest Beta Release

After its appearance on Android nearly three weeks ago, the dark mode for WhatsApp is now showing up in the most recent iPhone beta version…

In late January, WhatsApp finally rolled out support for a dark theme. But, it only did so for its Android mobile application and not for iOS. Now, it seems the wait for the later operating system is about to come to an end, in the not-too-distant future.

WhatsApp iPhone iOS Dark Mode Arrives in Latest Beta Release

WhatsApp is about to receive a dark mode for iPhone, as it currently exists in the latest beta version for the app. 

For such an innocuous tool, dark mode has no shortage of enthusiasts and scoffers. People either seem to love it or hate it, with very few in between. Nevertheless, dark themes do have their benefits. Two of the most often cited are battery savings and, of course, being easier on the eyes in low-light environments.

Although it’s present in the beta release for iOS, no tester has released any pictures of the feature in-action at this time. So, it’s not known what it looks like when enabled on an iPhone.

WhatsApp is the last of the three Facebook apps to receive a dark mode option. Messenger first got the experience back in early 2019. Then, in October of last year, Instagram followed.
