    How to Enable Google Maps Dark Mode on iOS

Google Maps iOS app now features a dark theme. The long-awaited feature will allow users to preserve battery life, while the greyscale interface will minimize eye strain by limiting the app’s contrast ratio to a minimum. Dark Mode was first introduced on Apple’s phones with the release of iOS 13 quite some time ago. Google, on the other hand, took nearly two years to support the feature on Android and iOS. The company stated earlier this year that Dark Mode for Google Maps would be available on iOS.

Dark Mode was added to Google Maps for Android in February of this year. Other new additions to Google Maps include eco-friendly routing, lite navigation for cyclists, and information on bike and scooter sharing. Google Maps will recommend routes that are optimised for the least amount of fuel use while using eco-friendly routing. The lite navigation feature will provide cyclists with route notifications without requiring them to enter turn-by-turn navigation, which necessitates the use of a screen. Users may simply check nearby stations and how many cars are accessible at any time using Google Maps with bike and scooter sharing information.
