    So I just updates for 7.1 and I noticed that I had this tint on the upper part of my screen. Reduce motion is turned off. I still don't get it. It's still there and it's bumming me out a lot.

    I have this problem also but only with one wallpaper. I figured it had something to do with 7.1.

    I have the same thing, but I notice that it's on pictures that I've taken and on some free wallpapers that I use. It doesn't seem to matter whether the Perspective Zoom is on or off. Just another nail in Apple's coffin for me. I am waiting for my new LG Flex to come in, and I KNOW it won't have as many glitches as iPhones do, whatever the model is. Apple needs to start listening to their customers. I won't be holding my breath for that.

    I am truly sorry but I do not see any tint across the top of you screen on this wallpaper and thank you for the upload but i just can't see it. Can you mark it with Skitch or another program to point it out?

    I see where maybe the top and bottom might be a little darker, it's hard to tell. Are you sure that's not the color of the wallpaper?

    No it's not the color of the wallpaper. The tint appeared after updating. The darker part begins at the top and ends under the time. Again, it's not on all wallpapers.

    I'm glad it's not just my phone.

    No need to be sorry. Just showing what I was referring to. Also, it's not just us 4. I've seen this problem posted in the 7.1 bugs thread also.

    I'll probably just go to the Apple store and ask them about it. It's not causing any problems...just irks me. LOL

    I talked with AppleCare and was told it was apart of the 7.1 update. Some wallpapers were darkened to make them look sharper. There's nothing wrong with the phone or software. I'm content with that.

    I can see it. It's also the same on mine. It's obvious that it's meant to be there for better viewing of the time. I'm sure it was there before 7.1

    I've tried it with a number of backgrounds and it only adds the tint when it's a color or shade that would make the clock hard to read. I'm fine with that but it also adds that to the home screen wallpaper where it's not necessary. I realize most people have icons there but I leave the first page of my home screen blank so I can actually SEE the pics on my background and put all my apps on the second page. Now if I want to see someone's face unaltered by this tint, their face has to be in the center of the screen. Obviously the phone still works fine but it's very annoying seeing a shadow over faces and the rest looks normal. And that tint on the home screen IS new to this update

    are you serious? i can give you the benefit of the doubt and believe that your eyesight is poor and/or your monitor needs replacing but you really seem to be "blinded" by brand loyalty. either way, the top 1/3 of that image is CLEARLY darker than the middle. i find it very difficult to believe you think the yellow in the middle of the image does not get darker as you go up. it's so evident.

    no it's not a big issue. it's an annoyance. but i really doubt your sincerity when you say you can't see it. sorry.

    While I agree with what you've said, I don't think it's brand loyalty. I think he just can't see it. No big deal. I don't think anyone expected him to fix the issue.

    i hear you. it's just that i happen to have very poor eyesight myself but can clearly see the issue in the example provided by mzengr (it is much less noticeable in the example provided by acerace113). i'm not used to my eyes seeing something that someone else cannot. actually this would be the first time. but they say there's a first time for everything.

    Same wallpapers have the tint on my iPad also...and the larger screen makes it much more noticeable.

    Anyway I just wanted to let the people who were experiencing the same thing know that there's nothing wrong with their phones.

    Oh, and my eyesight sucks also! LOL

    I have the same problem, I think what happens is that over a darker wallpaper, the time and date are in a white font and the dark tint appears. Over a light background, gray text appears and the tint is gone. I just wish there was a way to stop it from automatically choosing which tint/font color to use

    this isn't a glitch for the person saying that apple doesn't listen. it's a new feature to make it easier to tell the time and date. I know it bugs me too but this doesn't mean that apple sucks or anything..
