This week, Microsoft has released dark mode support to the Power BI iOS app, providing more enjoyable experience to users. So, if you prefer using a dark theme when on your device, you can now access this when using the Power BI iOS app on your iPhone and iPad.

How to configure dark mode:

If your device is already set up to operate in dark mode (Device Settings > Display & Brightness > Appearance), then you do not need to do anything else. Just made sure you have the latest Power BI app version installed, and the app will automatically inherit that configuration from the device setting. If you want to use just the app in dark mode and leave the theme alone for your device itself, go to the app’s Settings page, tap on Appearance, and choose your preference: Dark, Light or System default.

When the app is operating in dark mode, you will see all screens and dialogues are presented in a dark theme. However, the Power BI content itself (such as reports and dashboards) will not change and will stay in the colours and themes as published by the creator.

What about dark mode for the Power BI Android app?

Dark mode support will be added to the Power BI Android app later in the year – we will keep you updated when this happens.
