When iOS comes up with various features it seems that though they are trying to make things easier for its users, but actually it ends up hurting the users instead. The same holds true for the signature feature of iOS 7.1. The transparent layer with normal distribution of blur filters underneath it is causing trouble for the users of iOS 7.1. Most users find it distracting and end up going in wrong places. The keyboard transparency makes it hard for its users to dial the number correctly and when you are trying to navigate through the menu, then also you will find it difficult to do so. It becomes all the more difficult for people who are visually impaired. They find it very confusing and it becomes really hard for them to use the options or make a call using the keyboard. All these would have been even more difficult if iOS 7.1 wouldn’t have made it possible to control the usage of inbuilt features. By going through simple steps you will be able to reduce transparency of keyboard, menus and more in iOS 7.1.
