    Dark mode seems like a rare "give the internet people what they want" move from Apple. It's not very well executed or well-considered, but I struggle with what that would even be anyway? As designers, we have to think constantly about contrast of white on dark—and after 30 minutes in Spotify's cave-like UI, for example, I am done. So I think the question really should be why was this implemented at all? The biggest flaw I see is that even when 'dark mode' is on, content is still glaringly white by comparison. I guess I just don't really get it.
