If you prefer to use your own wallpaper, there’s also a new setting called ‘Dark Appearance Dims Wallpaper’.

With this enabled, the operating system dynamically adjusts the exposure and brightness of your own personal photo wallpaper. In the following example, the dark mode wallpaper dimming treatment is seen on the left.

The dimming effect is subtle but noticeable. If undesirable, you can disable it in Settings -> Wallpaper.
