In ios 8 beta 4 apple tweaked it's Control center. As I was going through the screen shots, I found that all of them were different to each other... What I mean is that some of them had blurred ares, but when something like wifi is "on", it shows white are around it.. While some have a blue area since the back ground is blue, while some what their whole control center in blue including the brightness and volume level..

If u look closely, you'll notice between 2 similar ones..

I don't know which one was intended by apple, but I think the iPad one is the best.

I've got my pics from
Twitter .. Just type in ios 8 beta 4 control center and see the pics ... I found these many

It’s easy to explain.

The blurred effect is the transparency effect of iOS 7 and iOS 8. Some more than others, as the effect can be on or off. (Settings > General > Accessibility > Increase Contrast > Reduce Transparency [OFF]).

There are two areas that are different between Beta 4 and pre-Beta 4.

The areas involved are the "circle" icons for Airplane Mode, Wifi, etc, and the area between the lines around the Brightness setting and the AirDrop/AirPlay settings.

Those screenshots with the areas filled in are iOS 8 beta 4. The "open" circles and the spaces between the lines for brightness and AirDrop/AirPlay are pre-beta 4.

After all those images the explanation provided earlier in the thread still seems to apply.

It’s transparency and blur. Not sure what you think is going on here. It takes on the colours of the background. Weirded me out at first because it didn’t look transparent in Facebook. Turns out I was just looking at text on white and the greater blurring in b4 just eradicated any details.

But yes, that’s all there is to it.

I think I didn't explain my topic.. What I was saying is that .. When sonething is toggled on .. In some there is only white.. While in some there are other shades because of backgrounds, while in the iPad pic, it's completely blue in color...in one of the iphone pic, with a black background, there are other shades with that white, while with the other black pic, it's only white with no shade of the background.. How is reduce transperency affected.. That reduce transparency completely changes the look of the CC making it some what like iphone 4's

This is reduced transperency

It’s how the highlights are calculated. With most light backgrounds it gets pushed to white. With something like a dark blue background you get a light cyan instead.

It looks like an additive filter is used for the highlights if you want to get technical.

In all of these pics look at the wifi in control center, some is only white, some has blue, some has shades of the background , while in similar pics, they are just plain white.

No it’s that with most light colours, when you use an additive filter and high amounts of blur it will just turn white. Just try it out on different backgrounds yourself and you’ll see what I mean.
I'm sorry I don't have ios 8 only any of my devices.

But on my iPad mini, it shows up white over the same background as one of the blue screenshots...

I feel like this is another older hardware things that happened with ipad 3 with the transparency on NC and CC.

I have an iphone 5 and the button when active is white while I think I have seen the A7 chips (ipad air, ipad mini 2, and iphone 5s have it transparent.

Thats what I have found at least.
