iTunes Dark Mode: How to Enable and Use it?

With the dark mode on iTunes, your eyes will interact with less light that the usual brightness.

Screen brightness is the cause of insomnia and eyestrain. But lots of apps in recent times are adding support for the dark theme. iTunes is one such app that can be accessed in a dark theme. By default, the iTunes interface is bright, white and it looks attractive during the day. However, it is the same all the time and it especially holds true during the night. It is difficult to view the iTunes interface when at low light or at night. Fortunately, iTunes added dark mode support and it is not only visually appealing but also user-friendly for the user’s eyes. By enabling iTunes dark mode, the bright interface will get a darker appearance. Find more information on how to enable iTunes dark mode from here.
