Redesigned Form Controls and Dark Mode CSS

by Timothy Hatcher

  • Form Controls
    • Looking at redesigning form controls across macOS, iOS, and now watchOS
    • Designs for buttons, checkboxes radio buttons text/search fields, drop downs, sliders, file chooser, text area
  • Dark Mode CSS
    • Proposing: @media( prefers-color-scheme: dark )
    • Need a solution for sites to tell us they support a dark mode interface
    • Proposing: <meta name=“supported-color-schemes” content=“light dark”>


Will we change default background color? It’s been considered, or maybe transparent to the background. Default text color would need to change too. It's a rabbit hole.
