Having this issue as well. It attempts to add a black shadow behind the carrier and time, but on my phone it's still unseeable. Same with the lockscreen.Hi all,
I have a white background as my lock screen which means i cannot see the clock! Hopefully the iPhone will be smart enough in beta 2 too allow the clock to auto change to black.
Anyone else notice this or have similar problems?
I don't think it does add shadow! Well, not for me at least.Having this issue as well. It attempts to add a black shadow behind the carrier and time.
Is that what your phone really looks like? With the time and carrier in black?I don't think it does add shadow! Well, not for me at least.
It's noticable on the lock screen but I think they will sort that out through betas.
Mine is the same in white...
Yes, it is. I just tike the screenshot.
I have no idea but even with the shadow it's impossible to see on mine. Yours looks great. I hope it's a bug as well, could really use the black lettering.Yes, it is. I just tike the screenshot.
Very bizarre! My guess is it could be a bug! How can it be so different?
I'm going to assume for now they're still perfecting the status bar icons and lock screen items adapting to the color of the wallpaper. I say this because I've tried multiple "bright" wallpapers (white or very close to white) and these stay white no matter what. The only wallpaper they've changed to black for is the stock wallpaper that's there when you install iOS 7.The clock and status bar are meant to adapt to the wallpaper (i.e be either black or white) as demonstrated in one of the developer videos on UI design. If it's not doing that in Beta 1 then expect tweaks in future betas to perfect that.
also i think this is why apple used backgrounds that didn't need the black text when they were showing it off at wwdc and on their websiteSo; we can't get black text in the icon lettering
rather than white unless we change background? In beta 1 anyways...
The reason this one shows up with white text is because the majority of the picture is dark. Just the top is white (blownout sky). Try with a background that has the majority white.
