    Welcome to iPad Forums, the best iPad forum anywhere!

    The band at the bottom of the home screen is permanent and can't be removed. It's a standard feature of the home screen in iOS 7. The colour of this band varies, depending on the colour of that part of the image being used as wallpaper.

    This band is where the dock is located, occupied with those app icons that remain stationary when you change home screens.

    Hello and welcome to the forum! :) Just to make sure, look at the attached pic (from the web) - does your 'grey band' have icons as shown? If so, then Scifan57 has already provided an explanation, i.e. your dock - now if not, can you take a 'screen capture' and post back to this thread? Dave

    Thanks for the like - you might want to just 'experiment' w/ different images and appearances - but the dock is a built-in feature. Good luck - Dave :)
