Popular social networking app Instagram was today updated to add Dark Mode support for iOS 13, introducing a darker theme that activates when Dark Mode is turned on.

The new Dark Mode option is available throughout the app, from viewing the main feed to browsing to the profile. Dark Mode can be accessed by activating Dark Mode on an iPhone running the iOS 13 update.


To get Dark Mode, the latest version of Instagram is required, even though the release notes don't mention the new feature.

This sucks, I like the way the photos “pop” more in dark mode for Instagram. But I don’t love system-wide dark mode and I don’t want to leave that enabled just for Instagram. Boo.

I must be the only person that doesn’t want Dark Mode Lol. Personally not interested at all. I’m glad it’s a feature though.
yes because dark mode is the best thing ever made since sliced bread! :rolleyes: I always see sites saying this app or that app just got dark mode like they just invented something! If anything, it hurts my eyes after a while and I go back to the light mode.

just put the toggle in control centre and activate it when you’re in insta

thats so dumb of instagram to not allow me to enable darkmode just for the app and only system wide, i don't want dark mode systemwide
Why? It’s so much better in every way

In every way? How so? I like it for some apps such as YouTube but I don’t like it systemwide

Yeah it gets a ton of coverage. It’s interesting.
