I don't know but it certainly feels like the "mechanics" that determine how this translucency works is different. I use an app called wallax to blur certain images and it let's you "preview" how the wall will look. When I did preview for a certain wall (with white background) the text was black. Worked when I did it prior to 7.1. Now it's white again and looks weird. Almost like it blends in. Have they changed it or a bug? EDIT: I'm talking about how it recognizes the text selection for wallpapers. It seems to be a little off from pre-iOS 7.1 version that my iPad 2 is running. Weird..
