What happens when you switch to dark mode?

Still in early stages, dark mode is currently available only in native Apple applications. For instance, Settings background colour is inverted from white to black. You will notice a similar dark layout in Safari browser, Photos, Calendar, Notes, and even Apple Maps. Third party apps are expected to add support for dark mode after Apple releases the stable version of iOS 13.
