Because true internet ninjas browse at night

Opera Mini is designed to be used comfortably during the day, even in sunny areas. However, when you’re browsing during the night, a bright screen can more easily tire your eyes. So, is there a solution for that? Actually, for iOS users, there is. There’s a special setting on iPhone and iPad that inverts the colors on the screen — including within the Opera Mini app.

First, you need to activate this option on your phone: Settings -> General -> Accessibility -> Accessibility Shortcut. Then, choose Invert Colors.

After that, you only need to press your iPhone’s or iPad’s home button three times to activate the Invert Colors mode. The photos below show the difference in Opera Mini’s appearancein night mode when Invert Colors is activated:

When you’re ready to go back to normal colors, just triple-click the home button again.

  • Nice info but isn’t it better to implement into Mini instead t ochange something on device…Like this, another platform users can have a chance to test it.

  • I set the triple click to the change to greyscale (to save battery), I think the invert colors could be done in the app, I have another app that has a night mode

    Is there any chance we might see some of these improvements on Android? The Android version’s UI is almost the same as the one used back on WM6 phones in 2008.
