Thanks iOS team!
A few of the nice touches in this release:
1. Night/sepia mode
2. Roll of the dice for Random
3. Timeline is super interesting -- I can see a lot of rabbit-holing

Hello mobile Wikimedians,
Today we've released a beta of the Wikipedia app to TestFlight which
includes our most requested feature: dark reading mode!
Its just one of several new appearance options, including dark and sepia
color modes, image dimming and convenient screen brightness control.
This release also includes a new "On this day" card in the Explore feed
for four initial languages (English, German, French and Swedish). On this
day is built on the rich anniversary pages and selected anniversaries
available on many Wikipedias, to highlight important events that occurred
on this date. Tap through for a timeline view and swipe back through
The beta also includes a small sticker pack for iMessage. We worked with
the Wikimedia Foundation's Communications team to create a set of public
domain stickers, so you can send wiki memes in texts. Now you can tell
your friends "citation needed!" in a group chat :) These stickers will be
coming to other social media platforms as well, but iOS beta testers get to
try them out first!
Thanks again to all our testers. If you'd like to become a tester please
PM, Wikipedia app for iOS
