512Pixels has a good article wherein the author shares thoughts on Dark Mode in macOS Mojave. As always, Apple puts great thought into its designs, and Dark Mode isn’t just a simple color inversion. At WWDC, Apple introduced guidelines for Dark Mode:
- Dark interfaces are cool.
- Dark interfaces are not just inverted.
- Dark Mode is content-focused.
The result is a darkly beautiful operating system that gives a fresh Mac experience.
As we’ve seen, this is far from a mere inversion of the default Appearance. Apple has gone through and fine-tuned the smallest details to make this work.
For example, the window shadows are different between the Light and Dark Appearance. In Dark Mode, they are a little crisper and slightly more opaque, complete with an inner stroke around the edges of windows to help them appear more defined.
