    They tried to make it look sleek like the new android devices but failed! its very odd looking and to me hard on the eyes there isnt enough contrast in the dial pad... oh the app store glad they finally redid it but they failed... android is doing everything right apple is shooting themselves in the ***

    Agreed ,first thing I noticed when using the new dial pad was that it was hard on the eyes. It's the little things that make or break a product.

    So disappointed too... It's not what "the most advanced operating system in the world" should look like.

    Here is my gripe that I called Apple about within ten minutes after updating my phone.  Whoever designed the new dial pad display obviously inst an intermediate eye glass reader.  What I mean is that I am at that age that a large number of people are at where I dont need glasses unless I have to read small print.  On IOS5 i could easily read the dial pad and it wasn't an issue.  Now with this new IOS6 dial pad the contrast is so weak that I have to put on my readers to see the dial pad.  To make matters worse, I can adjust font size on everything but the dial pad.  How hard would it have been to make a setting under accessibility to allow you to adjust the font on the dial pad.  I could care less about the color, it could be pink and green for all I care.  the font size and contrast is the problem.  It isn't functional.  Apple needs to fix this as I bet I am not the only person who isn't happy with this change.

    At age 50, and just barely needing reading glasses, I find the new dial pad color scheme MUCH easier to read than the old one. I've let Apple know how pleased I am with it.

    It's kinda funny that you need to see the number pad, the dial pad orientation has been the same since I can remember, lol. Just picking, but I totally agree, the contrast is terrible.

  • Jazzdog Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I agree the number pad change is terrible and hard to read, beyond that the overall look resembles that of a cheap phone

  • Daddy DooL Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Totally agree with you. The new scheme is absolutly none functional.

    I got my first iPhone (a 4S) a few months ago and the one thing I absolutely loved was the phone's keypad display.  The mix of blues and greens was very easy on the eyes and when I use it in a darkened room at night watching TV it is easy to see.  The new display after the update to ios6 is garish and plain and very unpleasing.  I would think at the very least Apple would give you an option to retain the "classic" motiff and not push out this terrible change.  Why change?  Someone critized us here by accusing us of preferring cosmetics over functionality.  How does wanting the color scheme we had affect functionality??  Why change what was nice and working well just for the sake of making it look different?  I hate it hate it hate it and I hope in the near future Apple will push out a little "gear" icon on the screen to let me swtich back to classic iphone pad color scheme!

    Well said, I agree with you 100%

    No apple's official commenting this post? We're getting bored of default uncustomizable themes, please make it customizable without degrading performance.

    No, Apple doesn't participate here. If you want to give them to know how you feel, use the Feedback page:


  • andy_v4 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Maybe if anyone could explain why none of themes customization app available in the appstore? I think Apple doesn't open the API to the 3rd party developer.


    Lets just discuss it here.... I think this is just an old question

  • coreyjg Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I'm pretty sure that's in the layer that Apple doesn't allow us, as developers, to access

  • santo17 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Giving feedback is the only way this problem has a chance of being resolved. If everyone who is dissatisfied would take the time to do it then maybe they will fix it. For me this is not about being able to customize colors etc, I think Apple in the past has done well in aesthetic design, that is why I am a loyal customer,  it's just that this new dial pad design is lacking in originality and does not have that Apple feel to it at all, and it is extremely difficult to see due to the lack of contrast.
