The Enhanced Contrast Dark and Enhanced Contrast Light basemaps are now out of beta. These are designed to offer higher contrast for the visually impaired. For details, see:

https://www.esri.com/arcgis-blog/products/arcgis-living-atlas/mapping/working-with-enhanced-contrast...

For all related Living Atlas high contrast content, see:

https://livingatlas.arcgis.com/en/browse/?q=%22Enhanced%20Contrast%20Map%22#d=2&q=%22Enhanced%20Cont...

These two are now part of the Esri default basemap gallery if your organization region is set to United States (Settings > General > Organization Defaults > Region).

Those organizations using a different region can still use these basemaps using a custom basemap gallery, or start with the high contrast basemap after signing in at the Living Atlas website.
