How to invert colors on iPhone

iPhones present many accessibility prospects. They’re released to help users with visual, auditory, and motor problems. One of the most popular options is “inverted colors.”

There are 2 ways to turn on the invention mode on your iPhone. Moreover, iPhone gives you an opportunity to set up a shortcut you can use to switch the inverted mode on or off.

Every color on your screen would be inverted into the exact opposite when you turn on the inverted colors. So anything white will become black, anything blue will turn orange, and vice versa. It might look strange to some users, but it’s great for users with colorblindness or issues reading bright screens.

Sometimes, inverted colors are used to decrease glare and eye strain. Some people also use inverted colors when they have visual problems.

Invert vs Dark Mode

The dark mode is an element of some operating systems and apps that modifies the colors of the user interface from the usual bright colors to darker colors. These dark colors are more appropriate for night use and for avoiding eye strain. It’s possible to change the color manually by the user or automatically based on ambient light or time of day. 

Older versions of the iOS, haven’t been provided with a true dark mode function for iPhones or iPad. That changed in iOS 13.

The macOS also has a dark mode feature. On macOS Mojave or newer, you can turn your Mac’s Dark Mode on or off.

Invert vs Night Shift

Even though both of those features modify the colors of the iPhone or iPad screen, they don’t do it in the same way.

Night Shift adjusts the prevalent tone of the colors on the screen by decreasing blue light and causing the tone of the screen to be yellow.
