Facebook is finally rolling out Dark mode support on iOS, after a year of teasing the release.
Some users have noticed that their apps have been updated and that a new Dark Mode setting has been added to their settings menu. Facebook has since confirmed that the iOS rollout for Dark Mode has begun, but that it may take several weeks for everyone to get it.
Back in April, it was confirmed by 9to5Mac that Facebook had been testing a Dark Mode version of its app after it had been teased alongside the redesign of the app last year.
The new feature wasn’t accessible, however, but a small handful of users could beta test it.
What’s important to note is that users will need to manually turn on Dark Mode in their settings menu, although the company has also added a toggle to change the appearance based on the iOS Dark Mode preferences.
In this case, Facebook will adjust its user interface depending on the color of your overall display, offering further unification.

Users around the world have begun sharing their Dark Mode menu on social media, including Matt Navarra on Twitter, who was one of the first to spot the change.
To see whether you’ve been given a Dark Mode option yet, head to Settings and go to Privacy.
Dark Mode on Facebook follows the rollout of Dark Mode for WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and Instagram over the past year. The new feature has been long-awaited, and complements the social network’s new design, with its desktop changes rolling out last month.
