iOS 10 dark mode iTunes Safari Clock iBooks

My colleague Andrew first broke news yesterday that Dark Mode resources have been found within iOS 10’s Messages app. Now, Dark Mode was expected to make an official appearance in iOS 10, but the WWDC keynote came and went without any mention of this feature.

Now Mac Aficionados tweeted out screenshots depicting a dark interface in other iOS 10 stock apps, including an automatic dark mode in iBooks, in addition to the Clock app, Safari and the iTunes Store.

As it turns out, dark interfaces in these apps (sans Clock) have been present for years, indicating Apple’s been testing how users might accept a Dark Mode option on iOS…. Read the rest of this post here

How-To: Replace open Safari tabs with folder bookmarks in one click on OS X

Safari has changed the way it handles bookmarks and open tabs over the last few versions, which has required me to slightly adjust my workflow each time. The change in behavior is small but one I’ve noticed.

Bookmark folders in Safari on the Mac have an ‘Open in New Tabs’ option that when clicked opens each saved website in its own tab using a single Safari window. A couple of versions back, this button would replace all open tabs with just the bookmarked websites in that folder.

Here’s that secret SnapBack shortcut that everyone should start using right now…. Read the rest of this post here
