iOS 18 Developer Beta 3 Brings Automatic Dark Icon Theming

The introduction of automatic Dark Mode theming for third-party app icons was observed by MacRumors on the iOS 18 Developer Beta 3 update. Users who have updated to the latest version with build number 22A5307F should now see the automatic Dark Mode theming for third-party app icons.

During WWDC 2024, Apple revealed new home screen customization options, such as the ability to add a color tint to icons or enable a dark theme for app icons. With the latest update, icons with white backgrounds can be switched to black. The release notes from Apple indicate that the update also addresses bugs related to the automatic dark theme for icons.

Aside from the new icons, the iOS 18 Developer Beta 3 update combines emoji, Memoji, and stickers in a single, scrollable interface on Apple’s iPhone operating system. The Photos app now features a Select option at the top-right corner by default, streamlining access for users.

Other features included in the latest iOS 18 beta version are enhanced options for RCS texts in the Messages app, a larger interface for the flashlight feature, dynamic versions of iOS 18 wallpapers, and updated colors for the Apple Maps icon.

The update also includes references to Apple Intelligence, the company’s upcoming suite of artificial intelligence features, with hints of Genmoji, Image Playground, Image Wand, and Writing Tools. Although Apple showcased AI features during WWDC, their official launch is expected next year, following the release of iOS 18 in the coming months after the launch of the iPhone 16 series in September.
