  1. I have iphone 4. I upgraded from 7.0.6 to 7.1 in an effort to get darker background on my text and email pages. That was a bust and now I will have to wait for a jailbreak. My battery is not experiencing the drain some describe. I would like to know if anyone has figured out how to darken those stark white pages.
