You might not understand the dark side of the moon, but the Dark mode of Instagram is not too tough a nut to crack.
Screenshots by users around the globe of their Instagram pages in the “Dark Mode,” earlier this year, took Instagrammers by the storm and how! Dark mode is widely offered by all the latest mobile operating systems which enables a user to turn down the otherwise almost blinding bright light. The dark mode is also specifically substantial and of great value for later night aimless scrolling that most of us are guilty of.
How To Activate Instagram’s Dark Mode?
When the talks of the dark mode on Instagram first buzzed around the towns, most users were led to believe that Instagram was offering a dark mode for their app in particular. However, that is not the case. In order to activate the Instagram dark mode, one needs to first enable the dark mode by visiting the setting of their very own mobile phone. It is only when you activate the dark mode of your phone, in general, is when you will be able to view Instagram in that mode too.

2. Dark Mode on iOS
Just like the Android OS, one needs to be sure of two prerequisites when it comes to activating the dark mode on iOS too. A) Your iPhone should be running on iOS 13 or higher. B) (Obviously) Your Instagram app needs to be up-to-date to match the latest version of the app available. Once ensured;
