With Apple’s official release of macOS Big Sur, we’re excited to introduce you to the fresh new face of Daylite! We’re also happy to announce Daylite supports Apple Silicon.
After hearing feedback from you, our loyal customers, that Daylite was starting to look a bit drab and outdated, we took this opportunity to give Daylite a make-over for a more modern and sleeker look.
“As Apple refined the design of macOS, we took the opportunity to modernize and revise Daylite to feel right at home on Big Sur. We hope that all the little details – refreshed icons, more readable fonts, clearer toolbar layout, beautiful dark mode – add up to a more delightful and productive experience for our customers.”– Fraser, Designer at Marketcircle
Daylite now supports Dark Mode so you can avoid the bright glare of your screen when working late and enjoy the sleeker look. To turn on Dark Mode open your System Preferences on your Mac, select General and then click to switch between Dark or Light mode.
Bigger fonts and improved accessibility
We pumped up the font sizes specifically in areas like the calendar month view and week view. We made the fonts larger and bolder for improved accessibility. Daylite now also supports increased contrast. To increase the contrast, open your Mac System Preferences, select Accessibility, and under the Display setting choose Increase Contrast.
Toolbar and notifications
The Daylite toolbar has been updated and re-organized for Big Sur. The Notification pane has also been updated and now you can drag and drop the Notification window so you can move it around wherever you need as you’re working through your notifications.
Refined calendar view
Another area that’s been updated to be easier to read and digest information is the calendar. The appointments have a refined look with rounded corners, brighter colours, and the text is more readable. Now when you’re in the day or week view of the calendar (as well as the Home Screen), the location and details of your meetings are displayed.
Daylite Mail Assistant
Daylite Mail Assistant has also been given some love. You’ll notice a cleaner look that fits with Apple Mail on Big Sur.
The Daylite icons have been given a refresh to look cleaner and more modern, and you’ll notice the Daylite dock icon has also been updated to match the new look on Big Sur.
We hope you enjoy the modern new look of Daylite on Big Sur!
