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”.

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