How to enable Telegram's automatic night mode on iPhone

The Telegram for iPhone (iOS) has been updated to version 4.8 and has won several new features. The highlight is the automatic night mode, which has been available to Android users for more than a month. When set, the dark theme is applied automatically in low-light or night-time environments. The function is ideal for those who want to use the messenger with more comfort in the dark, without attacking the eyes with the light and bright background of the cell phone screen.

If you've already updated your phone's apps, check out the step-by-step instructions and learn how to turn on and set up the automatic night mode. Remember that the feature remains an exclusivity of the Telegram - WhatsApp, its main competitor, does not yet have a dark theme.
