    Apple,,, you are the "Pits."
    You are more interested in being "cool" and different
    than the practical needs of everybody to be included.
    I simply can't read without extreme effort.

    Last night Apple upgraded my iPhone to 7.0
    When I opened my phone this morning I found
    that all Icons and background has turned to a
    light gray faded color. The type is much smaller
    and is now white against the light gray background.
    I am having extreme difficulty in being able to read it.

    I read somewhere "If you want to make people absorb
    the content of what you print. use a faded color that is
    harder to read. It makes people concentrate harder."
    But what if you have a sight difficulty, glaucoma,
    the old age problem of reading glasses, etc?
    I notice FaceBook has resorted to print in light, faded colors.

    I too find the lack of contrast to be a problem. I changed to bold fonts (under Accessibility) and it helps. But it is still not ideal.
