Is there a way to switch back to the old color scheme for the keypad? The new black-on-white color scheme is more difficult to see and use for the visually impaired.

Is there a way to switch back to the old color scheme for the keypad? After upgrading to ios 6, the keypad switched to a black-on-white color scheme.  I have a severe visual impairment and found the previous white-on-black color scheme much easier to see and use. 
The inverted colors option doesn’t make things look all that better.    My dad, who does not have any serious vision problems, has put off upgrading his iphone because of the color scheme changes.    

I have exactly the same concern. It seems it would be a simple fix for Apple to allow users to turn off the camera (and even the mic) while keeping FaceTime open -- especially now that it turns out FaceTime must remain open in order to send and receive iPhone calls on a Mac.
I like to think this new functionality of FaceTime will be baked into a future release of Yosemite, as the current setup has that not-quite-finished feel of a work in progress. In the meantime, there's nothing like a little piece of Post-It stuck over the camera to keep the NSA from watching your face as you type a post to the Apple Support Communities.

  • Is there any way to revert back to my old interface?

    I installed ios7 this morning and I can't stand the new interface.  And no, it's not because I'm resistant to change or just haven't gotten used to it- I genuinely despise it.  It looks like something designed by a 10 year old preparing for a career as a clown.
    I'm sure the answer to this is "no", but I'm gonna ask it anyway- is there any way to change the look of the interface?  some sort of setting that allows me to pick a different theme?

    thanks... and that's a shame.  I particularly don't like the new calendar.  the old calendar had a preview pane at the bottom of the screen so you could you click on a day and see the calendar items, while still having the entire month in the view.  the new calendar functionality is difficult to use without that feature.  I didn't see a preference allowing one to show a preview pane.  of all the things I'm finding that I don't like about the new OS, this is probably the biggest.
    are there any preferences or settings I can use to change the viewing options in calendar?

  • Is there any way to switch back to ios 5,

    I have found that ios 6 has slowed my ipad 2, even made it glichy. the internet has been disconecting randomly, and even shuts down itself the odd time since installing it.

    There is no Apple Supported downgrade path...
    Try This...
    Close All Open Apps...  Perform a Reset... Try again...
    Reset  ( No Data will be Lost )
    Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears. Release the Buttons.

  • HT204266 I have used apple products, phones, apps, iPads for 5 yrs. now, 1 iBook said I had to switch back from a U.K store? I've never been! Now I can't even update my apps I've used for years  

    This is my 1st time   so I can't tell if you all could see my entire question:
    Basically, I've been kind of an apple junkie since my first 1phone 3G approx 6 years ago then on to the iPads.  I've been really lucky with the apps, iTunes,etc. and finally decided to try a couple books and Instant nightmare.  Every time I open my apps or I books it s me I have to switch to the U.S Store.  I've never, switched out of U.S???  Now it's infiltrated my Netflix.  I go under settings and it it's all cool.  I'm in the right time zone.
    Please help me!! I'm healing from a surg and this is my only entertainment while waiting to get back to work.
    Thank you much!!

    Reboot your iPad and then try changing the store again.
    Reboot the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider if it appears on the screen - let go of the buttons. Let the iPad start up.
    Using iCloud has absolutely no bearing in this issue whatsoever.

  • I dropped my iPhone 4 in water and now it won't turn on at all, will i lose all of my data, for example my photos and messages etc? and is there any way you can back the phone up without having it switched on?

    If you had previously been backing up to iCloud (or a computer with iTunes), you would possibly have a backup.  That said, if you can't turn the phone on, you cannot create a backup of the device now.  Sorry.

  • Tiny Hotmail - Accidentally switched to "PC view" and can't switch backnd any way to switch back

    While reading Hotmail on my iPhone, I accidentally hit a button called "PC View," and my view changed to something that looks like my Hotmail on my laptop, but it's so tiny that it's illegible, and it isn't well organized for a mobile device.  But I can't find any way to switch back to the other view.  I have refreshed the window, closed it, and returned, and I've clicked on everything I can see, but nothing seems to work.  I can't use my mail with this view.  This is a stupid user error, I know, but there must be some way to recover.  Can anyone help?

    I would delete this question but don't see a Delete button.  I didn't exactly get an answer to the question, but did learn that I should set up Hotmail in a different way so that I never see the screen with the tiny text.  RESOLVED

  • Is there a way to go back to previous version of software as I don't like vers 1.1. Restoring it does not work and it turns off all the time after around 10 secs

    Is there any way to go back to prvious version  of software befoe 1.1 on ipod nano 6th generation. After update it switches off all the time after about 10 secs and I preferred it when I could listen to songs when in sleep mode without using too much battery power

    Peter,
    That was the problem. They were there, just not properly linked.  I used the one I completed in CS6 trial version (after preflight). When I exported that one and opened it in CS5 all was good.   I think I will make the upgrade as soon as I can afford it, but at least now I can make the system work for my needs. Thank you for your help!

  • They changed the way we see our appointments. That's awful! Is there a way to chnage back to the "old" way when you could see all your appointments at a glance????

    They changed the way we see our appointments. That's awful! Is there a way to chnage back to the "old" way when you could see all your appointments at a glance????

    Maybe I'm fool, but how I get the "day view"? I have three options on the top line, an icon that seems a computer (a square and two lines), a magnifying glass to search a especific item and a "plus" to add appointments. The "day view" isn't any more there - that's the point!!! Using the first icon a get the full month-that uses 2/3 of the screen- and two lines of appointments...To see the rest I have to slide up and down the two lines taking care to not touch the month...

  • I have an older ipod...ever since I updated the itunes software my ipod no longer works in my car.  my car is a 2013 mercedes E350.  Is there a way to go back to an older version of the itunes software?

    I have an older ipod...ever since I updated the itunes software my ipod no longer works in my car.  my car is a 2013 mercedes E350.  Is there a way to go back to an older version of the itunes software?

    If it's an older iPod, its software is not being updated by Apple.  So, I don't see how updating iTunes would make the iPod not work with the car's audio system, since iTunes just updates the song files (not how the iPod operates).
    Does the iPod work by itself (play songs), when disconnected from the computer and iTunes?

  • Is there a way to bring back the "Open a New Tab" option via right-clicking on the Tab?

    I just upgraded to latest version of Firefox (6.0). Yesterday it informed me that an upgrade to Firefox 5.(something) was available and asked if I wanted to upgrade. I went for it. However, I hadn't used it since then till today. Now when I opened it today it asked me if I wanted to upgrade to version 6.0. Without hesitation, I went for it too.
    While this version looks nice, it feels a bit odd to use it. Previously whenever I wanted to open a new Tab, I right-clicked on any of the Tabs (active tab or any other Tab) and after right-clicking, it had the option to '''''Open a New Tab''''' along with few other options. Now there's no such option. There's the + button to open a new tab, but what if I want to open a link in a new tab by right-clicking on it? Similarly the option to Open in New Window is also missing.
    Is there a way to bring back those previous Tab options/settings? If yes, how?
    P.S. In my bookmark toolbar, when I click on a bookmark icon, it has the same options/settings as it previously had in the last version I used (last version I used was 3.something; while I'd upgraded to version 5.something I hadn't used it except for opening the browser when it asked me to upgrade to version 6.0). Options on right clicking the bookmark icon are:
    Open
    Open in a New Tab
    Open in a New Window
    New Bookmark...
    New Folder...
    New Separator
    Cut
    Copy
    Paste
    Delete
    Properties
    I'd also like to mention here that I know of the shortcut keys; so please don't waste your time by trying to help me that way. Thanks.

    No. The Tab bar is a regular toolbar in current Firefox versions, so you get the normal right-click context menu of a toolbar if you right-click the tab bar.
    You can double click on empty space on the tab bar to open a new tab if you do not want to use the new tab button.<br />
    You can drag a link on that new tab button to open that link in a new tab.<br />
    You can also drag the new tab button on another toolbar if you would like that better.<br />
    Open the Customize window via "View > Toolbars > Customize" or via "Firefox > Options > Toolbar Layout"<br />
