iOS updates Chrome with card-based UI and dark mode

It’s just been a few weeks since iOS 13 started rolling out. The hotly anticipated upgrade added native dark mode which helps the battery as iPhones are equipped with OLED screens. But, third-party apps are still adapting. Google Chrome is the next app in the huge list of apps for iOS that now supports dark mode. Check out the images below:

Chrome 78 for iOS has also redesigned some parts of the browser with a card-based UI, along with the dark mode. Chrome considers the system-wide dark mode setting on iOS as it doesn’t have the ability to manually back-out. This is similar to what Mac and Windows do, but Android lets users set the theme on an app-by-app basis.

Although the dark mode is great, Google takes a different take on its dark mode. Chrome’s iOS dark mode doesn’t use OLED black. Moreover, the new look gives an overhaul to the New Tab page, bars, and various menus.

Bookmarks, History, Recent Tabs, and Reading Lists also get iOS 13’s card theme. Those pages feature bold headings and can be swiped down to return to your previous screen. There’s also a “Done” button in the top-right corner. The release notes mention the app’s capability to add a new credit card directly from the settings page.

Head to the App Store to download Chrome 78.
