    Hi, just curious if this means something or not:
    My iPad mini boots with a black screen and white Apple logo, while my 5S & iPad Air boot with a white screen and black Apple logo. How come the difference? Has it to do with a setting? Dark Mode or so? If yes, how can I change the settings?

    By design. the color of your device impacts the boot screen.

    My wife's white iPhone boots with a white screen, black apple.

    my space gray iPhone 6+ boots with a black screen white logo.

    @Armen: But only on newer devices (since iPhone 5s / A7-CPU-generation I guess).
    The white Mini 1 of my mum boots with a black screen/white logo while my white Air 1 and 5s boot with white screen/black logo.

    Works even on iPhone 5. I think the iPhones gotten it originally since about iPhone 5, but I don't think the iPads did, at least not at that time and perhaps only sometime later.

    Hi, all of my devices are white, also the iPad mini. It boots with a black screen, hmm. And its not too old either. I find it strange, but okay, probably doesnt´t mean anything. Thanks a lot for the input :D

    It likely never came to iPad mini so it uses the default black background with white Apple logo no matter what color the device is.
