    Just upgraded to v7 and the colors are really bad. I can't read the notes or the calendar. Is there any way to change them or do I have to go back to v6?

    The colors are what Apple has made and there is no going back to iOS 6. Sorry. All I can suggest is to keep using the iPad and hope you get used to it.

    I have a few calendar apps just for this purpose. I get a little tired of looking at the same 'ol calendar so I go back and forth.

    This is called easy calendar....it fairly easy to see.

    I really hate the colours, the folders I put my apps in are the same colour as my wallpaper so blend in. Is there anyway I can change the colour? Also hate everything white, it hurts my eyes. I know how to turn down the brightness but it makes something's hard to see. DONT LIKE IT :-(

    Sadly there's no option to change colours, so your stuck with it unfortunately, this was one of the reasons I reverted back to iOS6.13 yesterday, but users are saying that's no longer possible now. I thought Apples choice of colours and icon design was awful in v7.

    I too reverted back to 6.1.3 after using 7.0 for about a day. Sad to say anyone wanting to revert now can no longer do it.
    If they don't make some serious graphical, interface, and performance changes in a future updates, I'll be running my mini at 6.1.3 indefinitely.

    I had planned on upgrading my iPad mini to the 2nd gen when it comes out. After giving iOS 7 a spin on my current mini, that's not gonna happen. Not unless they make some big changes to this OS.

    The folders take the color of your background, so I would suggest changing it to darker color.

    You can improve the overall readability in two ways. Go to Settings > General > Accessability and turn on Increase Contrast and Bold Text. After Bold Text is enabled the iPad will reboot. When it restarts all system fonts and the native apps will have a thicke font. I'm not sure what Increase Contrast does. Either the effect is too subtle for my eyes, or it does not make any differnce on older models like the iPad 3.

    You can also increase the font size in the Mail, Contacts, Notes, and to a limited extent the Calendar apps. Choose the Larger Text option in the same place as the other two options.

    The Dynamic Text option is intended for third party apps. Any app that supports it will have it's font sixpze increased by this setting when enabled.

    The other thing. I've foundpd helps is to use a darker bacground. That won't help with the 'white' apps, but the trancelucent portions of the interface look better, in my oppinion anyway.

    It's a shame that we're now discussing workarounds in iOS. The beauty of iOS was always that it "just worked". This is why I reverted to 6 while I still had the opportunity.
