There is a new beta version of the TestFlight app for iOS available that many people might be excited to try out. One of the biggest changes you will find in this new beta update is a dark mode. We have talked a little bit about the TestFlight app for iOS before.

This app allows you to test out beta versions of apps for iOS and give feedback to the developers. It’s a great way to try new features in apps before they are released to the public. Read on to learn the latest news about the new TestFlight iOS update to see if it’s something you want to try for yourself.

TestFlight iOS Beta Update Brings System-Wide Dark Mode

The TestFlight app for iOS received an update this week and it’s in the form of a new beta update. The latest version of the app is version 2.6 and it’s out right now. In the newest update, the biggest new addition you will notice is a dark mode. This is a system-wide feature that only requires you to have the system-wide setting enabled on your iOS device.

This new dark mode comes as iOS 13 is quickly approaching a full and complete release. In iOS 13, there will be the option to enable a system-wide dark mode within the Settings. It’s really cool because you can schedule the system-wide dark mode for certain times in the day or you can keep the system-wide dark mode on all of the time. This is one of the best features coming in iOS 13 and TestFlight is making this update before the release of the new operating system in the fall.

Dark Mode Feature Hits TestFlight Beta Version as iOS 13 Release Gets Closer

If you are wondering how you can get the new dark mode in TestFlight, you must have the beta version installed on your iOS device. If you are not using the beta version of TestFlight, then you are not going to see the feature. You also can try the beta version of TestFlight if you are running iOS 13 beta including on the iPadOS beta version of iOS 13. It will not be released to everyone until the official release of the new Apple operating system.

As we have talked about a few times already, the official iOS 13 release is going to be in September. That’s really not that far away and we are hearing about apps adding features to be up-to-date with all of the new features found in iOS 13. Since iOS 13 is going to have a system-wide dark mode, we are expecting a lot of other apps to bring a dark mode in updates within the next couple months. Since dark mode is one of the most-requested features it’s a surprise that most apps have not already included this in previous updates.

Apps Continuing to Include Dark Mode for System-Wide Ability in iOS 13

Some of the most popular iOS apps already have a dark mode feature, but that’s not going to be good enough for iOS 13. The issue is that these apps are still going to need an update in order to integrate with the new Apple operating system. The apps will have to be able to show the interface automatically once the system-wide dark mode option has been enabled. Other popular apps are going to be putting out a dark mode feature between now and the official launch of iOS 13.

We are interested in hearing what you think about all of this news regarding iOS 13. What is the feature you are most looking forward to using in the official iOS 13 launch? Are you someone who uses the TestFlight app so you can try out apps and new features before anyone else has a chance? Do you think TestFlight is a great way to stay on top of the latest additions coming to some of your favorite iOS apps? What other apps do you hope include a dark mode and hope integrate with the system-wide dark mode option in iOS 13?
