The blanket of darkness covering our smart devices continues as Twitter announces a new "Lights Out" update for the app's existing dark mode, which inserts a really black background instead of a dark blue feed into the feed – ideal for OLED displays.
The official Twitter account has also changed his profile photo, header photo, and bio format to reflect the new "All Black" option.
The update is now being introduced for iOS devices, but for non-iPhone / iPad users, wait a little longer – a Twitter representative has told Engadget that the new Lights-Out mode will be "soon" on Android and will appear on the web.

If you want to enable Lights Out mode for your iOS Twitter app, just go to the Settings & Privacy menu, tap Display & Sound. , and turn the darkness on mode "turn it on" (if you have not already done so) and you should see a new option "light off" in the submenu of the dark mode.The old dark mode is still available, even though it is now called "weak."
Due to OLED's unique ability to illuminate only the visible pixels, the new Lights-Out mode should result in extra battery life for iPhone X and iPhone XS- Equipment is also expected to reduce eye strain.
