Today we will discuss the way to enable iTunes Dark Mode to avoid various issues. Well, if you are already a constant user of iTunes, then enabling its Dark Mode should be easier. Therefore, dive deeper into the content to check out the solutions.
Most often we have to turn on our PC, during the night time, for various reasons, and it’s normal. But, staring constantly at the computer screen for a prolonged period can be both uncomfortable and unhealthy for your eyes. For example, it may result in severe eye irritation, eye strain, redness of eyes, and sleep issues. It is true, typically when the brightness level of your device screen is turned higher than required. Looking at a brighter computer (or other such devices) screen at night can confuse your brain. As a result, it will be harder for your brain to determine if it’s a night or day time.
Our brains need some break during the night so that we can wake up with a fresh mind the next morning. Though it is highly recommended not to work during the night, unfortunately, that is not possible to follow by all. Suppose, the army veterans, professionals like movie producers to music directors, DJs, etc. can’t avoid spending hours on computer screens at night time. Their eyes constantly rest on the bright screen of the iTunes interface. Though it is best to avoid it, the afore-mentioned professionals can’t afford to do so. Considering the situation, activating iTunes Dark Mode can minimize the harmful measure to some good extent, if not fully.
Being a regular iTunes user, you may have noticed that the recent iTunes settings only allow darkening the menu bar. However, you can experience the advanced iTunes settings using the macOS Mojave version. The newer settings added by them is the iTunes Dark Mode.
Before directly entering the iTunes Dark Mode activation process and its usage, here is what you need to know about it.

Additionally, this feature may affect certain pre-installed apps on your Mac device. Switching to Dark Mode, apps including iTunes, news, App Store, and other various applications turn darker.
The Dark Mode of macOS is primarily introduced to minimize stress on the eyes of the user. Maximum eye strain occurs while working on PC at night, so this Dark Mode feature is handy to use then. It lessens the general screen brightness to fit the comfort of the eye. Consequently, you feel less strain while staring at the PC screen for long hours. Activating Dark Mode on iTunes is handy, typically for the movie and music producers, and DJs, etc.
The Dark Move feature by Apple Incorporated was introduced with the release of macOS Mojave. As you activate this feature on your iOS device, you will notice several features of Mac turned darker than usual. The new black shade is quite soothing in appearance and comfortable to the user’s eyesight, and so is handy to use at night.
