    Default Safari with black interface?

    Hey guys, I just had a customer who came in to activate an iPhone 5 and their Safari interface was black instead of the regular blue/gray color or whatever the stock color usually is. How do I get the black interface on mine? I tried to do a search on the forums for something with this but couldn't find anything, so I apologize if this is a already a topic and I missed it.

    Thanks!

    Could it be a jailbreak theme?

    The black background means that private browsing is turned on in the settings/safari section. That won't keep history or leave tracks of browsing activity.

    That's good to know. I might keep mine on private all the time just because I like the black better. Thanks.

    If it was a jailbreak theme on their iPhone 5 I would've stolen it and replaced it with my stock one Alli! Hahaha.

    Everyone that is using Private Browsing, how are you finding the experience? I agree the black scheme is cool, but is it a pain not to have your history saved, etc?

    No, no problem at all, usually if i want to save/ go back to a website I just bookmark it or send it to pocket/evernote, so no biggie for me.

    I love the black but u can't live without my browser saving all my logins as. Cookies. I wish they would make the black a theme option, maybe even for the whole OS. Maybe in a future version we will see additional customization.

    I am confused as to where you change the interface to black within the safari settings. Can someone post a screen shot of their settings page? I have messed around with it forever now trying to figure it out and I just can't!

    Open Safari, tap the Tabs/Pages icon, tap Private.
