    I yesterday gave my iPhone black wallpaper, and that, plus nil transparency, gave me much improved visibility.

    Without my having touched the Settings since, I now have horrible transparent desktop icons, some of which are to me invisible, though I know that they are there.

    I have enabled Reduce Transparency, but to no avail.

    Is there any way around this ?

    @willmtaylor I think they're saying that the black icons blend into the black wallpaper.

    No there is nothing you can do about this other than change the wallpaper.

    Not so ! Before the unwanted change, the opaque icons showed up perfectly on the black wallpaper.

    What kind of icons are we talking about? Any screenshot of what you are seeing that you can share perhaps?

    Do you perhaps have invert colors enabled in Accessibilty settings and that's what throwing things off for you?

    No, I have made sure that Invert Colours is OFF, and that is what is puzzling me about this.

    Try rebooting your phone. Keep power button and home button pressed till you see Apple logo. Then let go of those buttons.

    More importantly, why is the movies app alone in a folder labeled "productivity"?

    I guess because he wants to organize his apps the way he wants too.

    OP, this does look strangely like you turned on invert colors.

    Invert the colors on any of your iDevices. Inverting colors inverts ALL colors, including app icons. That's not what's happening here.

    I have rebooted the telephone several times, but it makes no difference to this particular difficulty. I cannot explain how the Movies-application comes to be concealed in Productivity, I am not aware of having done anything to cause that.

    Is the issue just showing up on this one wallpaper? If so, maybe the image is corrupted somehow

    No, it affects all wallpapers.

    Good question. That would be my best guess at this point as well. That or springboard has become corrupted somehow.

    At this point, I'd look at resetting the phone to see if that fixes it.

    So you can't change the wallpaper? If so try Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings.
