What you need to know
- Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote are now testing dark mode on iOS 13.
- The move is part of an overall dark mode rollout across the Microsoft 365 ecosystem.
- Insiders beta testing each app through TestFlight can grab an early look at dark mode across all four apps on iOS 13 now.
More apps in the Office ecosystem across iOS 13 are picking up a fresh dark mode look today — at least for beta testers. Microsoft revealed today that the dark modes, which were announced earlier this summer, are now rolling out for Office Insiders testing Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and OneNote on iOS 13.
These dark modes mostly look as you'd expect, with black backgrounds highlighted by white text across each app. There's also plenty of each app's brand color throughout, which pops against the black background. Dark mode can be enabled in each app by toggling your iOS 13 system appearance settings from light to dark.

Rolling out to Insiders right now and to everyone next week with v2.30! https://t.co/A9GRccjwrf
These rollouts are part of a larger push from Microsoft to roll out dark mode across its Microsoft 365 app lineup. We've seen dark mode roll out to Outlook and OneDrive so far, along with Microsoft To Do earlier today. In August, Microsoft released a video offering an early peek at what dark mode will look like across its lineup.
Assuming testing goes well, Microsoft is planning to release dark mode across these apps to everyone on iOS 13 next week.
