For years now, one of the biggest complaints people have about using their phones at night is just how bright the screen can be, especially on social media apps that tend to use white as the background. Of course, white backgrounds help make text more readable, but that isn't always best.

Twitter is solving the problem.

The social media giant is rolling out its highly anticipated night mode feature for the iOS app. It was first introduced on Android in July, where night mode re-skins the mobile app in darker hues so that it is easier to read and scroll for a longer amount of time.

According to the Twitter website, in order to toggle the mode off and on, you have to first download the latest Twitter update. Then it will say "Display and sound" and that is where you can change things like text size, accessibility options, and yes, night mode.

This has been in the works for some time, especially since iPhone users knew they were getting it after Android, something that isn't all that common. The new idea is the result of well-known developer Joaquim Verges, who made the ever-popular Falcon Pro Twitter client for Android. That originally brought night mode to the public's mind, and it was quite popular.
