    Since I went to 7.0.2 last night, the letters that appear on the keys as I type my alphanumeric passcode are white on light gray, whereas they were black on light gray in 7.0. They are now almost impossible to see, making typos much mire likely. Was this a deliberate change or a bug? Is there a way to submit bug reports for iOS? (I've only had an iPhone for two months and it's my first Apple priduct, so I don't know how bugs get reported.)

    Drat! I'm still not used to typing on a touchscreen. And I have auto-correction turned off because I've seen so many horror stories about things being "corrected" in embarrassing ways.

    I'm still curious about this change, though. Either it's a bug or it's Apple's way of increasing security by making it almost impossible to see which key one is tapping while entering the passcode.

    Hmm ... It corrected itself briefly and then went back to white again. What's going on? Very strange.

    I discovered something else: If you do anything that requires your Apple ID and password on the phone, the next time you use your password on the lock screen, everything looks normal again. That appears to remain true until the next reboot or restart of the phone.

    I've submitted feedback to Apple but I don't know if they'll act on it.
