You can turn it on by going to Settings and clicking on Display & Brightness and selecting the Dark option at the top of the screen. iPhone's apps will automatically switch to a dark color scheme.

    2. Set up a Focus to manage notifications

    With the iOS 15 update, Apple has introduced a new feature Focus mode that allows users to manage notifications. The feature allows only the relevant notifications to appear on the screen while blocking out less relevant alerts. You can set up different types of Focus modes like Do Not Disturb, personal, sleep, work, driving, fitness, gaming, mindfulness and reading. Additionally, you can also create your own custom mode as well as schedule Focus modes to let it turn on automatically when needed. To set up this open the Settings menu, tap Focus, and choose any of the available options to set up your notification preferences. If you want to create your own Focus mode, tap the plus (+) symbol in the top right corner.

If you're facing difficulty to get Face ID to consistently recognize you, set up the Alternate Appearance option. Head to Settings, click on Face ID & Passcode and set up An Alternate Appearance after entering your PIN. Next, go through the process of enrolling your face again.

    5. Avoid home screen app clutter on your iPhone
