But here’s the funny thing which you didn’t know all this while.


What if I told you there is actually a Dark Mode on your Apple TV?


Better yet, in fact, your Apple TV can even adjust between Light and Dark automatically by itself based on the daylight outside just like how your iPhone would. 


Should have done it earlier huh? 


Well it’s alright, I’ll show you how to do that and enable Dark Mode on Apple TV (whether it be manually, or making it automatic). 🙂
