The macOS Mojave brings a long-awaited Dark Mode to Mac users, and Apple has been encouraging third-party app developers to actively adopting the feature. However, most websites does not currently recognize whether the user terminal has switched to Dark Mode. Nonetheless, the situation will soon be changed.

Apple's latest Safari Technology Preview 68 update that's not for regular users, but rather preview new technologies brings support for "prefer-color-scheme" CSS media queries. This way, when the user switches to dark mode under the Mojave system, the updated websites can automatically use their dark theme to correspond it.

It's good news that it makes web pages look less dazzling in dark mode, but the question now is when this feature will really become popular, after all, there are more websites than third-party apps, still it's better than nothing. Under the impetus of Apple, there will always be websites to follow up and will be adding the feature soon.

Although it's designed for developers to test new features, it doesn't require a developer account, both macOS High Sierra and macOS Mojave can download it through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store to whom has downloaded the browser.

Since Apple introduced Split View on iOS 9, a feature that lets you run multiple apps side by side, it makes the iPad become a much more productive device. Sadly, you can't view two different windows from the same app. However, there is a little-known trick that can be very handy when browsing the Internet, that is, you can Split View in Safari on your iPad.

  1. Firstly, make sure your iPad is capable of supporting the feature, it's available in all iPad Pro models, iPad (5th generation and newer), iPad Air 2, and iPad Mini 4.
  2. Open Safari app on your iPad, and make sure it's in landscape mode.
  3. Click on the Tabs icon and then select Open in Split View; you can type CMD+N if a keyboard is included, or you can also touch and hold the tab, then drag to the right or left until a split window appears.
  4. And that's it.
It's pretty simple, right? Now, when you decided to end Split View, just simply touch and hold the Tabs icon, then choose Close All Tabs or Merge All Tabs. I do hope that someday the feature would come to iPhones, though you can already with a couple third-party apps like iBrowse Duo.
