    All the Siri Shortcuts notifications look like that.

    It could be smart invert mode which exist in iOS 11... but I actually kind of got the impression that suggestions were being shady differently than notifications.

    Apple made a huge deal out of the dark mode in macOS there’s no way they would release it in iOS without mentioning it... I think it’s likely to come in iOS 13 but it won’t be i
    In iOS 12

    hmmmm .. bah, ..meh!'re right ...

    Some people are saying they're saving iOS dark mode for the iPhone presentation in September ...makes sense .but it did too for new iPhone X with OLED

    camera in-app settings is another dissapointment ..

    “They’re saving dark mode exclusively for the oled display iPhone.” - people during June 2017

    They’re saving dark mode for the redesign next year, lol. Will they really call it iOS 13? Time for something new that looks different? They’ve been dropping the “i” lately.

    System bubbles will appear black. Media controls, Do Not Disturb, Siri Suggestions, etc.

    Notifications will appear white to diverse the two. Siri Suggestions were always black bubbles anyway.

    Why can’t Apple let user to make a choice on the colour theme?

    And I wish at least there will be night mode for setting, AppStore app...

    Kinda odd though that system Notifications are dark but email and other apps are still light.

    That spelling mistake in shortcuts on the screenshot cannot be unseen now since someone pointed it out!

    On another note I would love a dark mode for my X or even better have a dynamic mode like mojave where the colour scheme changes depending on the time of day

    I think it's in line with Apple's Digital Health initiative. System notifications like "Do Not Disturb" or "iCloud Storage is Full" don't need as much attention as email or Google Maps directions.

    I can already see the series of events that would take place if Dark Mode was implemented in iOS 12

    • Users find themselves toggling Dark Mode on and off when going outside or in a room that is brightly lit because it is difficult to read the screen.
    • Users ask Apple to add a control center toggle for Dark Mode because it's incovenient to go to settings > display every time.
    • Apple complies by adding a control center toggle.
    • Users then complain about how it's inconvenient to always have to go the control center to toggle it and ask for an automated process.
    • Apple complies and uses the ambient light sensor to detect ambient light and automatically toggle Dark Mode on and off based on ambient light.
    • Users complain that they like how "cool" dark mode looks and want to leave it on even when it's not dark so they disable the "auto detect" feature and....we're back to "it's not convenient to toggle it on and off".

    To be fair, that could really be said about many features, so it's kind of neither here nor there in that aspect of it all. (And realistically speaking dark mode might actually work out better in bright environments too.)

    Ultimately having the option doesn't seem like a stretch at all, especially given that they now actually did it for macOS.

    That said, seems like this thread isn't really about it as it was just a misunderstanding of a new type of notifications and how they are presented, without really having much to do with anything like dark mode.
