In these hours Google is releasing a new update for its Gmail app for iPhone and iPad on the App Store that finally introduced support for the Dark Mode at the system level.
Strangely, though, the release notes that accompany the latest version of Gmail on the App Store (6.0.200412) do not mention the support for Dark Mode, but only the arrival of offline support for Gmail search, which lets you search for emails even without an Internet connection.
The Dark Mode in Gmail works just like in other apps for iPhone and iPad: you simply have to activate it system-wide via Settings or from the control Center, and Gmail will immediately take on a dark appearance, a factor that will help save battery life on devices with OLED display and not get tired of the view when you check your e-mail of night. In addition, the app can decide if activate it or deactivate it manually.
Not just receive the update from the App Store now in the phase of rollout, head to the Gmail settings inside of the app and go to the Theme section where you can manually choose between the theme of “Light” or “Dark” or choose “system Default” so that Gmail respects the settings of iOS.
