It's not just that there is too much white space in IOS 7 but something about the color itself. Very fatiguing to the eyes, causes irritability, and ruins the crispness of the fonts. After a day, I went back to 6.1 on both iPad4 and iphone5 and it made a tremendous difference. Get back while you can. The light ruins anything that runs on top of it -- even turning the intensity down very low didn't help. As more people realize this, it is going to be a major drawback to IOS 7. Someone who knows what they are doing should investigate to see which 'color' white Apple is using.

It's a combo of neon colors, thinner "light" font, and too much white in the UI. My poor eyes.

I'm someone who knows that they are doing, I investigated, and Apple is using #FFFFFF.

So is #FFFFFF the same color used in 6.1.3?

Isn't Apple about battery life? Isn't white the most power intensive color to display?

I gotta admit I am having trouble finding the thin line and light blue control targets on the white background.

Earth to Jon Ivey, too much white space!

The phone is always displaying white, when displaying black the display simply covers the white up with black pixels. There is no difference in battery life.

No, you are confusing Androids and iPhones.

IPhone displays use IPS type LCD that sips the same low power no matter the picture.

Androids using AMOLED use a lot if battery displaying white.

OK, thanks for clearing that up but it's still too white a lot of the time. I prefer some differentiation of the various areas of the screen.
