    Are you talking about the dock? If so, nothing you can do about that. Just to be sure, care to post a screenshot?

    Yup dock was transparent before, and that's the way I like it. Why is this ugly grey bar there now?

    The dock hasn't been transparent since iOS 7. There's nothing you can do about it unless you jailbreak. .

    Yes, the opaque grey bar is normal. Nasty but normal.

    Only grey if you choose a black background. Annoying, I know, but you could always choose a different color background.

    You're making it out to be this huge complex irreversible procedure which it's not.

    It can be for someone who does not know what they are doing. When the OP asked "how to jailbreak", well...................

    We each here have own own opinion:rolleyes:

    Just to get rid of the grey bar? :p

    My background is not black and you still have the same grey bar. From what I remember it has been there a long time.

    I just do not see how this can be that big of an issue as it is just part of the OS. But different things do bother people.

    DO a Google: iPhone jailbreak

    I have a blue background and my dock is blue. When the bottom of my background is green, the dock is green. It's never been grey for me, unless I had a black background.

    Agreed. I am thinking the OP wants no bar of any color.

    Not possible unless you jailbreak. I suggest researching jail breaking and see if it's something you'd want to do.

    I personally don't do it anymore but some people do as it allows you to change things Apple does not give you the option of changing.

    This would be one of those things.

    Not sure if I want to jail break it, as there is a chance I might screw it up somehow , like I did my htc. Just weird that it was transparent before, and then turned Into this. But thax for replies

    Select a lighter color background and the bar is less visible. You can find a nice picture and try that. And yes, the bar is kinda an eyesore.

    Was it with a different background? Are you sure you don't have some sort of contrast or other settings enabled? Perhaps it would be worth enabling/disabling them and/or restarting the phone to see if it might change things?

    Jailbreaking isn't even an option with iOS 8.1.3 anyway (at least not so far).
