Currently, the only way to (sort of) get dark mode on your iOS device is to use the ‘smart invert’ feature – but it isn’t that ‘smart’. Rumors about iOS 13 though, indicate that a true, system wide, dark mode is coming.

Mac devices recently got their own dark mode with macOS Mojave, and so it would make sense that Apple want to roll this out to all mobile devices too.

A report from Bloomberg suggests that this system wide dark mode will work across all of the iPhone and iPad’s main apps (contacts, messages, settings etc.), but would also work with many third party applications too.

There are many apps which support their own dark mode, such as Twitter and YouTube, but this is not yet consolidated across every iOS application.

We know that the technology is there, as it is already being used with the Apple Watch, which uses the same OLED screen as iPhone and iPad.

As an added benefit, this dark mode could well save battery life too, as OLED screens require less power to display darker colors than brighter ones.

This concept for iOS 12, released last year, shows what dark mode could look like, at 0:56.

The dark mode may also operate similarly to the night shift feature, which users can set to turn on at specific times, to reduce the strain of staring at a bright screen.

Presumably, users will be able to opt for dark mode to run permanently, or alternatively turn on and off at predetermined time slots.

We should hear more about the upcoming iOS 13, and the newest iPhone and iPad for that matter, sometime in 2019.

CD Projekt RED’s upcoming futuristic RPG has collaborated with OnePlus to form an incredible Cyberpunk 2077 phone.

Cyberpunk 2077 is arguably the most anticipated game of the entire year, and it’s finally on our doorstep. After a string of delays to perfect the title’s gameplay experience, CD Projekt RED confirmed it will arrive on December 11.

Of course, it’s one thing to play the game and it’s another to own a device designed to fit in the world. The OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 Smartphone is an incredible device designed in collaboration with the title’s futuristic theme.

Unbox Therapy has showcased the smartphone, and revealed the immense detail in its design and packaging.

It’s obvious from not only the design of the device but the packaging alone that a tremendous amount of effort has gone into achieving the Cyberpunk theme.

As shown in the video, the inside of the phone’s packaging contains a map of Night City and a set of themed trinkets. On top of this, the phone’s charger even has a Cyberpunk logo imprinted on it.

Alongside the device, buyers will receive a sleek and detailed appropriately-themed phone case, and a set of stickers to personalize its appearance.

The device itself has a futuristic design with a back split into a glass and textured finish. This gives the phone the modded and upgraded look that fits in with the Cyberpunk world. The edge is also lined with a gold ridge which echoes the yellow branding associated with the game.

The attention to detail only continues as the mobile turns on and reveals its incredible display. OnePlus has implemented a themed menu and background centered around a neon design. It even comes with unique sound effects that add to the futuristic aesthetic of the device.

Unfortunately, it is only available in China so it looks like we’ll have to make do with V’s virtual phone from the game for now. Fingers crossed OnePlus decide to release the phone worldwide in the near future.
