    OK—have to admit—a longtime fan of iPad white bezels, and the new iOS 13 Dark Mode just doesn’t look as good as with black bezels. :(

    Damn—compelling enough for me to upgrade from my gold 12.9? Not sure...

    Damn Apple! LOL

    It would have to bother me pretty bad to force me to upgrade just for the bezel color.

    Glad, though, that I always do black.

    I’ve always done silver/white for my iOS devices when available - it gives them some aesthetic charm as being Apple devices going back to the iPod days, plus dark grey/black seems to be the default for almost every other device on the market.

    But now that iOS devices seem to be moving towards minimalist bezels and OLED screens, the bezels that remain are understandably black to better blend into the screen. I imagine white bezels aren’t going to be around for the long haul.

    I’ll probably try dark mode nonetheless when I install iOS 13.

    He is talking about hardware color and the screen color. Screen shot would only show you the software side of things.

    Sorry my mistake. Meant to take a pic of white iPad mini with dark mode.

    I’m worried about dark mode on the iPad. True blacks on an LCD don’t look at all. I wish I could have a grey variant like in Mojave.

    I wouldn't have thought this would be an issue for those who like white bezels. Always just assumed that they liked the light colored interface to the point that if given the option to enable dark mode they'd just opt out.

    There are no more white bezels after iPhone X and 2018 iPad Pros :p
