See Settings app > General > Accessibility > Accessibility Shortcuts : enable Invert Colors.

In plain text apps, the text itself has no style, so changing the colour does not affect any data - it's purely a display thing. In rich text apps, the text colour is part of the data itself (because in a rich text app, you can change the colour of the text). In the Mac text system, there is a "temporary formatting" feature that allows developers to apply a temporary colour to text, which we use in the full screen mode. This feature is not available in iOS.
I do know of a way to override the text colour, but unfortunately there's no way to also override the colour of underlines and strikethroughs. So, this is the fundamental problem of adding a dark mode to Scrivener for iOS.
All the best,

What I *could* do, though, if I can solve the technical program mentioned above, is at least add a dark *writing* mode.
