Using iTunes on computer at night can cause eyestrains and insomnia especially if the screen brightness is high. Some of us who are DJs, Music Producers, or VJs use iTunes for Windows or Mac to play music all night long, and constant look at the screen light confuses our brains that it’s still daytime. We really need a way to manage our eyes even as we work or use iTunes in the late hours of the night.
Nevertheless, the existing settings in iTunes let us darken the menu bar, but the new macOS Mojave will extend this feature to the entire Mac and iTunes interface, and this new feature is called iTunes Dark Mode.
What is iTunes Dark Mode?
In macOS Mojave’s Dark Mode, most of your operating system’s bright features will go dark of gray. This includes features like the dock, trashcan, menu bar, and system panel. Some macOS Mojave apps will also share in this feature, and such apps include iTunes, Safari, App Store, News, etc.
Therefore, with iTunes Dark Mode, using iTunes at late hours of the night won’t have much strain on the eyes. It will be very handy for those who play songs with iTunes for lengthy periods, and at late hours of the night.
How to Use iTunes Dark Mode
