Dark Mode has many benefits, mainly "power saving" and "eye protecting". Compared with "Light Mode", the screen brightness of "Dark Mode" is lower, which can make users experience the product more friendly in low-light environments. Also, Dark Mode keeps the screen less bright so you won't disturb people around you when all of you are staying in a dark environment such as cinema.
