It has been more than a year since Mark Zuckerberg unveiled a fresh design for Facebook that de-emphasized its News Feed at Facebook's F8 conference. 'The New Facebook' after the design overhaul, also ditched the signature blue banner that has been on the app since its launch.

Fresh updates, as reported by 9to5 Mac website, highlight that Facebook has been rolling out its new design to a "small percentage" of MacOS users so that they can test the interface and provide feedback for the same.

A major feature that was introduced during the redesign and which may soon get released for iOS is a new Dark Mode option on the web interface, added the tech website. However, there has been no official announcement of the dark mode release yet.

Facebook also confirmed to CNET that it currently plans to release “The New Facebook" to everyone before the onset of this year's spring. This can possibly mean that users should expect to see the new design on their account before 19 March, reported 9to5 Mac.

To reiterate, the Dark Mode support for iOS users has still not released by Facebook, in spite of the fact that the same feature is supported in Facebook's other apps such as Facebook Messenger and Instagram. There has been no official word on when the Facebook app for iOS will add Dark Mode feature.

Apart from this, Facebook-owned social messaging app, WhatsApp is also rumoured to get the Dark Theme soon, but we are still awaiting an official announcement of the same.

Stating that the Dark Theme is not available yet, WaBetaInfo, the website that tracks latest WhatsApp updates, had earlier reported that iOS users may also soon receive the feature. The report also pointed out that WhatsApp is working on Dark Theme which will be compatible with iOS 13.
