I really don't like the new style in iOS 6 and OS X since 10.7 where a lot of important text and icons are now displayed in very low contrast, i.e. light gray instead of black. Specifically in iOS 6 this is visible in the new colored menu bar that you have implemented in some of the apps, i.e. Contacts, Calendar, Phone, Mail etc. Compared to the old white text on black background, it makes things a lot harder to read. The new iPhone Music app is even worse with its gray text and monochrome icons. Very hard to read and to get a quick overview. Same with the new iTunes app, artist and album names are now gray and very hard to read. When I look in an album list to see if there's anything I'm interested in, I have to READ the artist names. This to me, is the most important information. Apple has now made the artist names the hardest thing to read quickly, i.e. they are most light gray. Sometimes it's so strenuous to read this light gray text on a white background that it actually makes my eyes hurt. I don't like this new direction at all. We have the same problem in OS X since 10.7, i.e. the side bar in Mail and Finder, buttons in Safari etc. which are now monochrome and have very low contrast. This makes it much harder to find things and read text in general. This has definitely slowed my workflow. It's NOT an improvement. There was nothing wrong with how things looked in iOS 5 or Snow Leopard. It feels like Apple just changed it for the sake of change. I don't know anyone who likes this new direction Apple is taking.
