    I've been putting up with animation lag on my 4th gen iPad since iOS 8.

    However, I've just realised that turning on Reduce Transparency fixed it in an instant!

    But the dock & folders are now a horrible grey colour.

    Is there any way to change this colour?

    Any kind of trick, or workaround?

    I've tried numerous wallpapers, but the same grey colour remains.

    Thanks in advance ...

    No, there's no way to change that and it sucks, you'll have to jailbreak.

    I wish the dock and folders would at least be colour-aware and match the wallpaper with a solid colour.

    Thanks, Carlos.

    You're right, it should have some kind of relation to the tones of the wallpaper.

    Grey is such a cold colour!

    Do you use the Reduce Transparency feature?

    Makes a huge difference on my 4th gen iPad ...

    Yep, I use it on my iPhone 4S though I really miss the blur when I'm on the homescreen, but I don't really mind the NC or CC colours.

    Kinda miss the "Reduce Transparency" of iOS 7.0. It got rid of the translucency in problem areas, keyboard, CC, NC, Safari Tab View, Siri, but kept it for folders and dock. 7.1 went overboard and changed EVERYTHING gray. I find using more monotone wallpapers makes the gray UI more tolerable. Here are a couple examples, using some Apple default wallpapers in iOS 8.

    But yeah, I agree with a previous post in this thread. The UI elements should turn a solid color depending on the wallpaper. It will look nicer but still maintain the same performance improvements seen with the current reduce transparency.
