Dark Mode

Deliveries 9.0 offers a fresh new look, subscriptions, and a bevy of new features

These unprecedented times we live in, driven by the uncertainty of the Coronavirus pandemic, have driven more people to resort to online shopping over in-store shopping than ever before. With so many online orders happening all at once, some may find it difficult to keep track of all their packages, and that’s one reason why I use the Deliveries package tracking app from Junecloud.

Junecloud released a massive update for Deliveries on Wednesday, officially bringing the popular tracking up to version 9.0 for iOS, iPadOS, macOS, and watchOS and incorporating a plethora of much-needed upgrades including aesthetically pleasing interface tweaks and handy new features. If you’re already using Deliveries, then this is an update you won’t want to miss – and to those who aren’t… what are you doing with your life?

macOS Big Sur: How to make Dark Mode even darker on your Mac

The dramatic Dark Mode look arrived to the Mac with the October 2017 release of the macOS 10.14 Yosemite software update. Fast forward three years and users can now force Dark Mode to become a bit darker thanks to a new setting in macOS 11.0 Big Sur. Follow along with our tutorial for step-by-step instructions for how to to make Dark Mode even darker on your Mac.

Eclipse Dark Mode Colors brings advanced personalizations to Dark Mode on iOS & iPadOS

Apple listened to our cries of desperation and finally integrated a native dark mode into iOS 13. Albeit limited in at least some capacity by way of color options and app support, it was a mild starting point that helped a lot of people realize the full potential and beauty of their iPhones’ OLED displays.

So if you’re on iOS 13 or later and you’re looking to get more out of dark mode, what should you do now? Allow us to point you to Eclipse Dark Mode Colors (iOS 13+), the latest iteration of iOS developer Guillermo Morán’s popular dark mode tweak that brings custom color schemes and a slew of other options to iOS’ native dark mode implementation.

DarkSwitch commands iOS’ dark/light modes based on display brightness

One of my favorite features to ship with iOS 13 is native dark mode support. Not only is it something that I’ve wanted to have for several years, but it plays so nicely with the OLED display that comes standard in Apple’s flagship handsets for both enhanced aesthetics and lengthened battery life.

One way that I think dark mode could be improved, however, is with some kind of tool that automatically switches between dark and light mode depending on display brightness, as it would improve interface visibility in certain situations. Fortunately, that’s precisely the functionality that a free jailbreak tweak called DarkSwitch by iOS developer udevs appears to provide for users.

DarkAlertPls makes all iPhone alerts respond to iOS 13’s dark mode

Albeit rare, iOS sometimes displays alerts as opposed to banners. These alerts are designed to appear at the center of the display, usually with a prompt of some sort for the user to respond to.

Unfortunately, even if you’ve configured your iOS 13 handset for dark mode, some of these alerts may still come through as light instead of dark. This is a problem that iOS developer LaughingQuoll aims to fix with a newly released jailbreak tweak called DarkAlertPls.

Edictus lets users create Dynamic & Live iOS wallpapers for free

Just last week, we took an in-depth look at a jailbreak tweak dubbed DynaWall that permitted users to create Dynamic and Live wallpapers for their iOS device. With it, users could expand their handset’s wallpaper options when switching between dark and light modes. And if that wasn’t enough, users could even create their own animated Live wallpapers.

DynaWall was certainly an impressive release, but the full version also came with a price tag. That’s one reason why we’re particularly excited to share the release of a new free jailbreak tweak called Edictus by iOS developers aboutzeph and Soongyu Kwon.
