iOS 11 brought quite a handful of major changes to the table. Not only did it contribute to several variations in the performance department, the update also tweaked the platform visually. It has been more than a month since the upgrade was available to the general public. The company also released subsequent updates for the operating system that carried bug fixes for various issues. As of now, we are expecting the company to release iOS 11.1 that features various forward-facing additions. App developers are also updating their apps to take full advantage of the new features. Similarly, Wikipedia has also updated its app with iOS 11 support for iPhone and iPad. Let’s check out more details on it.
Wikipedia Updated its Mobile App with iOS 11 Support Featuring Full Compatibility with iPhone And iPad.
As we have mentioned earlier, Wikipedia has updated its app with full support and compatibility with iOS 11. Wikipedia app for iOS adds various new features and also takes advantage of the Smart Invert mode in iOS 11. Starting off with some of the most basic features, the app includes simple sharing options and improves the “share-a-fact” shareable cards.
Now moving on to the new Smart Invert mode support, it basically inverts the colors of the display which are not so hard on your eyes. Smart Invert is the closest you can get to the dark mode in iOS 11. It reverses the colors of the display but keeps the images and media as they are. iOS decides itself which assets on the display should be inverted. Even though it’s not perfect at this point, but it gets the job done to the most extent.
One thing to note here is that Apple already provides a way for developers to select certain assets in their apps that the Smart Invert mode should not invert. At this point, there are several major apps which are already taking advantage of the Smart Invert mode.
With Wikipedia, Smart Invert will allow you to read the text clearly and the super white theme of the application will not strain your eyes. So it’s definitely good to see the feature added in the new update. The best part about the Wikipedia is that it is fully compatible with the iPhone and iPad. The app is available in the App Store for free, so do give ut a swing.
