Is this a bug because of the beta or a limitation of the iphone 4 ?

    When I remove the transparency, the dock becomes solid black.

    That may be a limitation of the iPhone 4. It has a rather underpowered GPU for iOS 7.

    How is this a bug? If something is no longer transparent it is then solid...

    In the screenshots I saw the dock does become solid. Is it black because of your background?

    Happens on my 4S and iPad mini. If i turn on 'Reduce Transparency' the CC becomes solid grey, the NC becomes black and the dock becomes much darker.

    Seems to function correctly.

    There is a change as to how it works in 7.1 beta 1--instead of turning the dock into a solid color that is still consistent with the wallpaper that you have (although still darker), it now turns the dock into a solid dark grayish color, no matter what kind of wallpaper you actually have.

    Same thing happened to me when I loaded (updated) iOS 7.1 beta on my iPad Mini. The dock turned solid black and could not find a way to fix it.

    The only way I was able to solve it was to use Restore instead of Update when loading 7.1.

    Sounds like you had Increased Contrast turned on before updating and you experienced the new settings.

    It's not a bug, just gotta turn off the transparency setting.

    Well, it's a different way that the setting now works, which could potentially be buggy on some level--hard to know for sure at this point.

    Yep. That was it. Turned it on and same thing happened. Didn't even knew I had it on before. :)

    But it wasn't like that on 7.0.4, the transparency was gone and the dock was solid but it was changing it s color if you were changing the wallpaper.

    How is 7.1 running for iPhone 4? Is it better performance wise?

    It defenetly is better, but the scrolling is still not as smooth as ios 6.
