iOS 7 Color Code Not Enough? Enable On/Off Switch Labels

iOS 7 Color Code Not Enough? Enable On/Off Switch Labels

When it comes to iOS 7, it is a complete new world for all of us. Apple has changed many aspects as to how the iOS works. The Cupertino company has also changed the color which is used to differentiate when a switch is set to on or off.

When you think that this option is not for you, then head over to the same place and toggle off this setting.

The good part is that this change not only applies to Apple’s app, but to all apps installed on your iOS device. This setting is a must-have for people with disabilities, or for those who think that only color labels aren’t enough.
