Good afternoon, Absolute Beginner really does sum me up. My son gave me an iPad mini, incredibly generous, and I'm still very much getting to grips with it. This afternoon I had an Apple message on it to update to , I think, Ios7? Does that make sense? It sounded like a technical necessity so I pressed Yes. I wish I hadn't. All the icons have changed, not for the better, and seem to be larger (example, News stand icon was a nice wood news stand - now it looks like a blurb in primary colours) there's a grey band across the base with the home icons on, and when I go onto the web from it all the background colours have gone and it's a very aggressive white, if that makes sense. Made my eyes water quite quickly! I've tried resetting the brightness and contrast from the settings menu and it's improved a bit, but not much. Is there anything I can do to get the previous set up back, or is this a lesson learned the hard way never to press yes to updates? All help gratefully received.
