TikTok has a dark mode that’s easier on the eyes and helps save battery life, making it great for using the app at night. This feature is available on  iOS devices. It reduces screen glare and looks better in dim lighting. If your phone has an OLED or AMOLED screen, the dark mode can also make your battery last longer because it uses less power to show dark colours. Dark mode is becoming common on many social media platforms because it makes the app more comfortable to use and is better for your device.
