Siri is trolling us ahead of WWDC keynote with vague hints of dark mode in iOS 10

Go ahead, pull an iPhone out of your pocket right now, press and hold the Home button and tell Siri to please “turn on dark mode”.

Much to your surprise, instead of responding with a “I didn’t quite get that”, “I don’t understand” or some such, she’ll inform you that “I’m not able to change that setting”.

As noted by AppleInsider, the wording is unusual given that iOS currently contains no reference to any kind of dark mode. Is Apple trolling us ahead of the keynote?

The very idea of a Mac-like dark mode in iOS 10 has already given birth to a pair of concepts, one imagining dark mode on an iPhone 7 and the other sporting detailed mockups depicting what Apple’s most popular stock apps would look like with a dark interface.

As evidenced by your own WWDC 2016 wish list in response to our pre-WWDC roundup, a significant subset of our readers are rooting for dark mode in iOS 10.

WWDC 2016 kicks off with a keynote today at 10am Pacific.

    Omg I hope they do!!! I’d consider leaving jailbreak for this plus w/e they for to try the beta D:

  • yes please!

  • Bring on the dev. beta!

    • Yujin

      Maybe it will be ready tonight after the announcement but hope if it is, it is not buggy as hell like the past two releases.

        I hope not I got a busted iPhone 5s i can test on lol xD

      • Usually they release the beta to dev’s the same day as the announcement. Only way I can see that not happening today would be if IOS 10 is a major change with a brand new interface. And as much as I want that to happen, I pretty much figure it’s not in the cards this year…maybe next year?
